In brief: Depends....
You could be very out of shape, but it could also be something much more serious.
Do not continue to exercise until you see a doctor.

In brief: Not really
Becoming very short of breath when not exerting yourself hard like in a sprint is concerning.
You should be able to recover well if not, it could be due to exercise asthma, possible palpitations, structural heart problems, use of stimulants/drugs. You should speak with your physician about this.
