Doubtful, likely it's just a little tough to shift. Make sure your clutch is correctly adjusted, and you're pulling the lever all the way back. You need a single firm press on the shift lever to drop it a gear from 1st into 2nd....
hold on a second, are you trying to skip second gear?
Of course I'm generalizing from a single example here, but everyone does that. At least I do.
