"It's OK" or "no problem"?

Hello. At work today, I was working at the coffee and tea station at a funeral. One lady was going to get some tea, and this gentleman that was very close by said he would "get out of her way". At which point, the lady said, "no problem".

Now I would have said "it's OK". But apparently this lady was a native speaker, so I wonder maybe her version is the correct one. Can someone tell me whether "it's OK" is also accepted or should I stick to "no problem"?

    I hear both of your versions in this situation/context, and another one:
    "No problem"
    "It's okay"
    "You're fine"
