I'm going to explain some of the symbolism from your dream. You've got quite a few ...
Snake - wisdom, knowledge or transformation/self-renewal. Hidden fears or worries that are dangerous or threatening to you;
Red - love, warning, anger
Hand - relationships with those around you and how you connect with the world
Help/helpful - willingness to compromise your belief for greater good/accomplishments.
Here is my interpretation on it:
Someone or something is taking advantage of you or your emotions in your waking life. You are afraid of confronting this person for fear of "rocking the boat." You don't realize that you are compromising yourself in the process, hence you asking someone else if you should worry about it. It could also mean that someone else is angry at you and you are aware of it but simply ignoring it. To generalize it could mean that you are going through some sort of disagreement with someone and you need to find a middle ground in order to move forward with your life. Only through consulting with yourself could you get more clarification on the issue though.
Hope it helps. Good luck!
