Probably not: this is usually due to a small cyst on the ovary that did not resolve at the time of your ovulation and now is resolving. as it resolves, it causes a decrease in Progesterone and that allows you to shed your lining. If it resolves no worries. If you continue to spot irregularly, you should seek care.
