To sort that out, would need more information but there are basically two different major reasons for unilateral face weakness - one is a peripheral nerve problems (bell's palsy, with dysfunction of the seventh cranial nerve) and the other a more central lesion, which could be more worrisome things. Best to get checked as good neuro exam will sort this out.
