When my conscience tells me to do something or not to do something does this mean God is speaking to me?

Assuming that one's conscience is "well-formed" (CCC 1783-1785), the answer would seem to be: Yes.

"Moral conscience, present at the heart of the person, enjoins him at the appropriate moment to do good and to avoid evil. It also judges particular choices, approving those that are good and denouncing those that are evil. It bears witness to the authority of truth in reference to the supreme Good to which the human person is drawn, and it welcomes the commandments. When he listens to his conscience, the prudent man can hear God speaking." (CCC 1777)

Reference. CCC 1776-1802.
