In brief: Possibly

All people have changes in mood.
The difference between normal and bipolar is the frequency and/or extremes of mood changes.

In brief: Bipolar

Depends on how long the symptoms occured for, if other episodes preceded this one, how intense & what effect they had on your daily functioning.
Best to get evaluated by a mental health professional for assessment & tx recommendations.
