      Possibly. If it does, it will be very small and quite harmless though, so no worries.

      so far no black holes. if gravity becomes strong at low energy, as some theory that nobody believes suggest, a black hole could be created at the LHC, but it would decay immediately, so it would be completely undistinguishable to the untrained eye to the 40 millions collisions we produce every second.
