In brief: Yes
There are many types of irregular heart beat.
Often the irregularity is due to normal heart rate variation. It also may be due to an arrhythmia. Determining whether an irregular heart beat is concerning requires a recording, such as an electrocardiograph, at the time of the irregularity.

In brief: Yes, don't panic
The heart has a system of pacemakers to control the heart rate, which all normally create an even, or regular, heart beat with the rate varying with the pacemaker in control and your physiologic needs.
Any variance of the regular beat can be termed "irregular", but the significance also varies. Seeing your doctor to verify, look at causes, and then target treatment, if any, is the thing to do.
