In brief: Probably not

Many people do not have an oxygen saturation of 100%.
Depending on age and medical history, a saturation in the mid to high nineties is no cause for alarm. The device that estimates oxygen saturation (pulse oximeter) may underestimate saturation if it encounters interference in the form of ambient light, irregular pulse, or cool extremities (fingers).
