In brief: Maybe,

If it is the only thing happening, ie: no other symptoms, and if it doesn't last too long.
But if there are other symptoms, changes in sleeping, eating or energy or if it drags on, it wouldn't hurt to have a psychiatric evaluation. A short course of psychotherapy may be all that is needed.
