No, the flower has just reached the end of its life. If the leaves are still green and healthy, you are doing a good job.

You can remove the flower after it turns completely brown. Bromeliads only flower once in their lives, but the foliage will still look nice for a while, and you can reproduce the plant if it develops any "pups":
