No: Non-stress tests evaluate the baby's heartbeat. They are ordered if there is a medical complication with the pregnancy such as diabetes or pre-eclampsia or if your pregnancy goes past your due date. They are also done if you aren't feeling the baby move for more than an hour or two. If you have an uncomplicated pregnancy you will likely not need a non-stress test.
