In brief: Maybe

If she is eating, sleeping, and peeing/pooping normally, probably not.
It sounds like she may have contracted a virus, which is getting better from your description. If she develops a fever or the vomiting returns, or if you still feel uncomfortable about her condition, seek the attention of your pediatrician.
