Probably not. But you should call your orthodontist and talk to them about it.  
I researched this problem myself; I have had a similar experience myself. By looking and exploring many different sources of information, this is a common effect and is nothing to worry about. Chances are this is most likely attributed to your molars not having grown in enough, and unless it is seriously impairing your ability to eat, don't be too alarmed. In many cases, this speeds up the shifting process as there is less of a resistance for your teeth. If you are still worried about it, feel free to phone your orthodontist to find out more.
