No, they all will get that sooner or later, if your concerned you can run some SeaFoam through it, just pour it in the fuel next time you fill it up, it may or may not release the carbon but it will help clean the injectors. The only thing to watch for is if it blows some black smoke at start up, if it does them you could have some leaking injectors, but if they aren't too bad the SeaFoam will help.
