In brief: Perhaps not

A short luteal could be a problem if you are trying to conceive.
First check time of ovulation by multiple methods since using just one may be misleading. Most accurate is serial transvaginal ultrasound but is not readily accessible. Ovulation kits are not as accurate as they like to claim. Your basal body temperature should rise and cervical mucus dry up immediately after. Sometimes there's pain.
