In brief: Diabetes is bad!

Too much sugar in the blood is a sign of diabetes.
In diabetes, the extra glucose or sugar, in the blood can cause lots of organs to not function properly over time, most importantly the heart and blood vessels, nerves, kidneys, and eyes. This needs to be diagnosed quickly and treated aggressively for prevention of damage to these organs!

In brief: Probably

That would entirely depend on how high it is and how long it has been high.
If you are not diabetic a transitory high blood sugar is probably of no consequence. If it remains high you should be tested for diabetes. If you have diabetes and your blood sugar is high it is a sign that you should examine your treatment regimen and see where it needs to be changed.
