Laptop fan sped up randomly while not doing anything - Likely thermal paste issue?

It wasn't to the max fan speed but it did speed up where it was audible for a few seconds, went back to normal after that. I have no background applications or anything whatsoever, just chrome. This happens maybe once a month.

I did do a thermal repaste a few months ago for the first time and likely put too much, my fan speeding up is probably from improper heat dissipation?
