Do you feel faint when you rise from a sitting/resting position, or do you feel faint while sitting calmly?  If it is only when you rise I suggest you check what your HR is and if you can what you blood pressure is.  If either or both of these are low, that could cause the faint feeling.

I do recommend you have your doctor look at the skipped beat to determine what is origin is.  It is most likely not serious, I think, but any unusual activity from the heart is something that I recommend be checked by a cardiologist or other doctor who deals with heart cases on a regular basis.
