In principle, yes.

Some scientists are hoping to find signs of bacterial life (past or present) on Mars. We would need to explore Mars more much thoroughly to have any chance of finding life there - and be careful not to contaminate it with microbes from Earth.

But the galaxy is a big place, and many scientists think that life must exist somewhere in our galaxy; for now, we can't visit other stars, but astronomers are trying to invent ways to see planets around other stars, and analyze their atmospheric composition for hints.
