In brief: Usually not
Leg pain can be due to any one of a large number of causes, most of which are minor; it would be uncommon for it to be something "bad, " but it can happen.
There is not enough information provided to even begin to suggest possible diagnoses - it depends where in the leg the pain is, duration, what might have caused it, your age, medical conditions, etc. Without more info, it is best to see a doc.

In brief: Many possibilities
Your pain could be as a result of many different things.
A thorough history and physical exam and possibly some laboratory and radiology exams are needed to determine the exact cause. Causes of pain may include: trauma (fracture, sprain, arthritis), infection, metabolic conditions (gout), circulatory, musculoskeletal or biomechanical abnormality and neurologic conditions (neuropathy).
