If there is a black spot on a tooth, does it always mean it's cavity?

In brief: No

It could be a stained pit or a small filling.
Don't take any chances. See a dentist to determine what it is. Hopefully, it can just be polished off (or filled with a very small tooth colored filling) before it gets larger.
