I bought two cans of Zinsser Bullseye primer, and only noticed once delivered that they are in "tintable white." This is primer -- not paint -- and the intent is to use it as primer before applying the desired colour of paint.

Can I use "tintable white" primer like regular primer? Or is there something to worry about here?

Yep. Tint is completely optional as a measure to cover existing paint or prepare for new color.
