As your study abroad guide I would like to suggest that you should go for that and come do the best of you! 

I know it might seem challenging, but retaking the IELTS exam to improve your score can be super beneficial. I've seen students who weren't happy with their first score, but after studying and practicing more, they did much better the second time around. Plus, having a higher IELTS score can give you more options for universities or job opportunities in the future.
