Bathroom Outlet Always Trips

Ever since we moved into our house, our upstairs bathroom outlet trips. It used to trip when I plugged a vacuum into that socket. (Now I plug it in somewhere else.) It recently tripped when my daughter plugged a blow dryer there. The two bathrooms upstairs and the kitchen are on the same circuit - my husband got the outlet to work by resetting the GFCI outlets in the kitchen. He says to just get a lower wattage blow dryer (it’s a standard 1875) but I think we should hire an electrician. Should we be worried about the outlet?
