Just refocus on the breath. The passing thoughts will come and go.
In due time your mind will settle and distracting thoughts will cease altogether. This leads to single-pointed focus.

"Dwelling on whether you have thoughts or no stops the flow of energy that meditation is supposed to have. It prevents this practice from achieving its full potential in you" Quote from one of my early meditation teachers.
