My advice would be: Yes, eventually. But there is no reason why you can't import them as they are now. The more familiar you become with Revit, you will want them all drawn with Revit for the ease of further modification.

Okay...I can understand that....but if I import my blocks (as they are 2D of course)...they will be 2D in Revit???...and can i make them 3D without recreating them???

2D cad brought into Revit is still 2D. While you can manipulate these 2D lines to a very limited degree, it is still best to redraw if you plan on doing any modifications. You can bring 3D into Revit, but it will lack any previous intelligence (from ADT or whatever). Hope that helps.
