Question: Do I have an exhaust problem?

I drove to work and my car was fine eight hours later I stared the car and noticed the engine light was blinking and hit the accelerator and it didnt accelerate smoothly it kind of gargled then accelerated. The car still has power but it will gargle when you first hit the gas after stopping. The car is not still anymore but the engine is still quiet.
