I was just given a pay-cut as a disciplinary action. This action came with no warning. Time to quit, right?

I recently made a couple minor mistakes at work that didn't result in any personal, property, or major financial damage to anyone. At the time, they were shrugged off by my supervisors as no big deal and, when I mentioned my concern and took responsibility, I got the, "Everyone makes mistakes, nobody's perfect" line. When given an opening and opportunity, nobody mentioned any problems with my job performance.
Today, I walked in and sat down in a meeting with my supervisor who told me that I wasn't meeting their expectations and I was being given a pay-cut. After a 3 month probation, they'll think about restoring my original pay grade.
I'm not sure that I want to work it out or that I can feel comfortable working at this job anymore after a surprise like this. I've only been here for a couple weeks and I don't have any roots yet.
It's fine to bounce, right?
