In brief: No
Most likely the engaging part of the baby is in the pelvis and that is why your fundal height is less.

In brief: Sounds normal
It's better to compare the fundal height during your pregnancy, but usually the height goes down as the baby "drops" or engages in the pelvis.
Your OB also does an estimate for size (efw), checks fetal position, possibly cervix check if needed, and reassure you that all is well. It is very common to measure what you did at term. Do your kick counts & report any problems to your ob. Good luck.
