If there is such a restriction, it will be printed on your card. If it is not there, then it's up to you.
If you decide you should tell the cop, there are ways not to do it.
Opinions vary, but one recommended way is to hand the permit over with your driving license. Another is to say something like "I have a concealed carry permit and I am carrying a firearm."
It is probably best if you do not start out by saying "I have a gun!" Give him chance to absorb the idea slowly.
Keep your hands on the wheel or in plain sight. Do not reach for your gun unless you are told to, and then do it slowly.
