5.5 yo suddenly misbehaving at school

I have a 5.5 yo boy. In the past week we've had two instances at school. Last week he said a boy said his name in a mean way and so he hit him in the stomach ( it's scary to have to type that). Then yesterday on the bus he turned around and spit at another kid. This is not like him at all. The teacher who helps load them said he didn't see it happen- and wasn't sure if it was completely intentional but it probably was.We've had the here and there disruptive behavior- but nothing like this. This doesn't even fit his personally( and I'm not just saying that because I'm his parent). He's always been extremely sweet and kind to others. He was in preschool for two years and never touched another kid.

Is it possible he is not feeling well? Being Bullied? ADHD doesn't suddenly show up....
