In brief: Likely
If you are young, and the nasal tip is red and tender, you might have a small infection underneath and an acne pustule is possible.
If you are elderly it might need an evaluation. Try applying very warm soaks with a wet washcloth every couple of hours for a day or two, but get it looked at if persistent or enlarging.
