    It depends on what they are apologizing for. If they had just run over your mother in their car, your response might be different.
    If they simply bumped you in a crowd, a simple grunt is sufficient. I say "s'OK" which is short for "it's OK". Either of your choices is alright too.

    In AmE, it's more common to say "Don't worry about it." People will understand what you mean if you say "No worries," but they will also think that you're trying to sound like an Australian, a la Crocodile Dundee.
