Default Cracks in foundation

How worried should I be about this crack and how would I go about repairing it?
The crack is on the side of the house of the garage and not the basement (if that matters). Also I can see the vertical crack in the garage as well but not the horizontal.

The mess to the left is just some one changed their mind on the level of the garage floor at the time it was built
The crack going down to the right, as it has not opened much is not much of a problem but could be if water freezes in the crack.If it is old and hasn't been affected I would think you have good drainage taking water away.

Others may have different thoughts.
