In brief: Not primary

Susceptibility to pseudomonas is observed when the normal defenses we have against infection are broken down, for example when a patient is very ill in the intensive care unit on a ventilator or breathing machine) mostly this is an acquired problem. However in cystic fibrosis, which is a genetic disease there is a particular tendency to get infected with this bacteria.

In brief: No,

Not at all. It is a nasty bug well known in hospitals as causing infections however, there is no familiar tendency to get the bug.
