Probably not : But you don't give enough information. I would assume you have a gas stove. You give no symptoms. If you have headache, dizziness, and nausea, these are the most common symptoms. If you can improve the ventilation in the home and do not leave the stove on. Please note these symptoms are also common with other things as well.

Maybe: Gas stoves could be faulty. Get your home checked for carbon monoxide levels. Detectors are available at numerous hardware stores, and by most codes, should be present in homes. Your utility company could also check the situation.

Typically not: While this is possible, proper ventilation and maintenance should prevent carbon monoxide from forming and building up. A home carbon monoxide detector can help make sure you are not in danger.
