Live with it until its soo bad that you really need to get it repainted. Then you can add a clear bra

If you paint your hood to cover small chips it will be impossible to tell if it was just cosmetic work like you're describing or if the car was previously in a "trainwreck" of an accident. I agree with A3Night to delay bodywork. Keep a good coat of wax on it for now.
