In brief: It depends...

There are many possible causes for the dryness you describe including & not limited to: the position in which you are lying, how you are breathing (mouth or nose), medical conditions, medications, diet, physical condition, or hydration (how much fluid you are drinking).
If this is affecting your breathing, consult with your primary care provider right away; it could be simple or more involved.
