What support is needed

I'm sorry. The sliding glass door is on the first floor. Is any special support needed prior to removing the header joist? Are the floor joists sufficient enough support? The floor joists do rest on a 2X4 that lays on top of a concrete basement foundation wall. I am not sure if the header joist is load bearing or not. I would assume it is because it is an exterior wall.
