Field strip the pistol and raise the Slide Stop. If it doesn't immediately retract, then yes, it may be either a broken spring, or broken bar itself (at the pivot point).
If it retracts, but feels gritty, the bar may be rubbing against the frame. If it feels gritty, look to see what it is rubbing against.

If you end up needing to replace either the spring, or the bar, there are plenty of good videos of how to completely strip and assemble the Shield line of pistols.
