It is likely that teeny tiny amounts of the ink would end up in other colors. However, the amount is so teeny tiny that the answer may as well be no. No ink will bleed into other colors you may put in the pen later as long as the pen is well-cleaned and water runs clear through it.

Some inks are quite persistent, and may not be removed from a pen with plain water, so use of a chemical wash, ultrasonic cleaner, etc. seems a good idea.
It has been the case that residue from previous ink/s may [suddenly] interact with another ink, hence be released from the pen unexpectedly. i.e. The ink is acting as a cleaning solution.
EDIT - to add: When I do my wee Ink Reviews, I mention pen clean-up. I do a water-only clean-up, then use a chemical wash to see if additional ink is released. Much to my surprise, some simple dye based inks were not removed with plain water.
