Use a key or coin and tap on the tile you think has lifted, it will make a hollow sound if the glue has let go.
If there is no crack in the grout and the tile is not drummy I tend to think it was like that from day one.

I layed the tiles so i used sufficent amount of glue its not just one tile thats my concern some areas in the hallway its 3-4 in a row and various other places around the house its more than one tile and the part that confuses me is that they havnt cracked or missing grout
