Hi there.  Probably not.  The average length is 3 to 7 days and you are just one day over.  If it is heavy or you become overly concerned about it, please DO call your doctor to make sure all is well.  Sometimes a hormonal imbalance can cause heavy, longer than average periods but you are just one day longer than average.  good luck
