No.This is typical behavior for squash plants and quite normal. They will naturally produce mostly male (non-fruiting) blossoms early in the season (which normally fall off) and will gradually start to produce more female blossoms as the season progresses. Give it some time and you will begin to see more female blossoms and fruiting.
