You are correct that the symptoms you describe (sleep paralysis and "hypnagogic hallucinations") can be a sign of sleep deprivation or a sleep deficit.  The best way to stop these things is to improve your "sleep hygiene"

If you work on getting better sleep for a few weeks and see no improvement, it's time to talk to a doctor. In rare cases these can be symptoms of a sleep disorder such as narcolepsy. But, again, it's much much more common that these are just from poor sleep.
