Hi there. I think it depends on the severity of the situation. If the issue is something that you believe you can work out with your coworker by telling them the issue and how you would like to resolve it, then it might just be best to discuss it with them and move on from the issue. If the issue is something you feel uncomfortable discussing with them or you do not feel like the situation could be resolved by just talking to them, you might want to bring your manager or HR into the situation just to make sure that everyone can be heard equally.
