Hi Joyce
depends on if you leaked urine, or if you dreamt and had an "accident", or if your bladder just contracted with out you being able to stop it. It can be caused by infections, stress or a bladder problem so yes, I do think you should at least have a gyne exam and a urine test to exclude serious problems. If it only happened once, it may have been a very vivid dream or just a very deep sleep...
