In brief: Yes

If any balance problems last more than a week or so, or if they are severe, get it checked out.
Other concerning things might be associated hearing loss, ringing, and pain or drainage from the ears. You can look up some balance exercises online to help with the balance in the meantime. Your local ENT will evaluate you and likely test the hearing as well. Best wishes!
