I have had about 3 nosebleeds in the past 6-8 weeks. Not too serious, but unusual for me. Should I consult my primary care physician?

In brief: Yes.
It could be a sign of hypertension or a bleeding disorder. It also could be a sign of lesion inside your nose that needs attention.
Finally, it could just be a sign that your mucous membranes are dry from home heating systems.
