In brief: Unlikely

A "stomach bug" is usually due to food poisoning which self resolves in 24-48 hrs or a viral illness which results in nausea, vomiting and/or diarrhea and resolves in 2-4 days.
Key is hydration with electrolytes replacement. Nausea and all other symptoms resolve when illness ends. If you are experiencing chronic nausea, it could be signs of something else. See your physician.
