Apparently a data leak and my password on this site is comprised, should I change them?

This is a new function on iOS, and afaik they get their data from a source such as https://haveibeenpwned.com

This site will say if your email address was included in a data breach. If you look at when they occurred, you might find that you have changed your password since then anyway.

No harm in changing your password anyway.

And don't reuse the same password on different websites.
Get a password manager to generate and store your passwords.

I have changed my password from Password1$ to Password2$ to shut it up.
