The answer to your question is most likely "yes". However, additional information is needed. I assume you are a party to a live case before a court. Are you representing yourself? You should probably contact the court clerk and get information on the status of the case. The other party may have set a hearing already. Without more information, I can't answer this question they way you hope.

If the court sent the case to mediation, then one of the sides needs to advise the court that the mediation failed to reach a settlement; the case then continues.
If the mediation was private without court intervention or knowledge then the court need not be advised and the case just continues where it left off.
If this pertains to a NC Superior Court case, you should have gotten notification from the court staff on the tentative trial date, should mediation prove unsuccessful. The dates for both mediation and trial are often set at the same time, although the trial date firms up following an unsuccessful mediation. If your mediation resulted in an "impasse," the mediator will file a document confirming that result, and the civil trial administrator will contact you with a trial schedule. You can reach out to the staff on your own initiative and see if any next steps have been docketed at the courthouse. I hope this is helpful.
I believe you posted this same question twice.
I do not practice in North Carolina, but If your case is in Charlotte, NC., you are in Mecklenburg County.
The court in that county has a GREAT website with extremely helpful information, and in particular a five page FAQ document that provides important information to help you.
Below is the link.
It does appear that there are some court driven dates. If you don't take action on your case, eventually the court will set up a status conference to determine why your case is floundering. I would encourage you to look at this PDF. If you can't afford representation, I would encourage you to look for local family law clincs or to secure an in-person consultation with a family law lawyer in your area to let you know where your case stands and to give you guidance on what relief you can reasonably secure based on the specific facts of your case.
