At what point to sell option going into earnings

Hi all,

I bought my first call option last week and am now up 138% I'm very happy with this return so far and would like to know if I should simply close the position (it's 1 call option – was getting my feet wet so only worth $200) or, if normally we ride it going into earnings? If I expect the share to continue to rise, I should simply hold on and sell prior to the day of earnings, no?

Thanks for any input – still new to all of this
