New Bathroom

I want to hang a new bathroom mirror. I will be anchoring it (hopefully) in a stud directly under the light fixture. I need to drill holes for the screws and anchors. Should I be concerned about the electric from the light fixture?

the wire should be 1-1/2-2 inches from the surface of the drywall but if you are putting the screws into the stud the wire should be stapled along side of the stud or it may feed from overhead. but going into the studs you wont need anchors only the screws. dont use screws over 1-1/2 and you should be fine.
