Unlikely.: It is difficult to assess abdominal pain with the few details that we have in your short question. However, as a generalization, appendicitis usually occurs in the right lower quadrant or mid abdomen, not usually on the left. Having said that, there are other causes of abdominal pain which need medical attention that do occur on the left side. If it persists, see your doctor. Good luck.
