In brief: Possibly
Sinus tachycardia doesn't mean that there is an abnormality in your sisters heart rhythm. Sinus tachycardia is usually an appropriate rise in heart rate due to a real or perceived increased body need for oxygen, nutrients or temperature regulation.
It is very common during pregnancy to become a bit anemic and this might easily explain the finding; she should see her doctor to make sure.
