The main reason people use a secondary is because rumor has it that if you leave the beer on the yeast cake for too long you'll get some off flavors. Apparently, that's not true. I do it anyway because I find that my beers end up a lot clearer after secondary and I get a lot less sediment in my bottles. It's your preference but a good reason NOT to do it is that you'll lose a little bit of beer during the racking problem.
Are you tasting any noticeable off flavors or does it just taste flat/watery? By now your beer should taste pretty close to what it's supposed to. Not exactly like it but you should be able to get a general idea of the taste. After a few weeks in the bottle it will carbonate and the beer will clean up a lot.
