I was overpaid by my boss, and now I'm being underpaid. Should I say something?

My last pay period, I was overpaid slightly. I immediately told my superior who said that he'd look into it. This was awhile ago, and since then, I haven't been asked to return the money.
For this pay period, I was underpaid by roughly the same amount that I was overpaid by a month or two ago. I'm now at a break-even point with my money, but I was never told that there would be a withholding from my check to make up for the previous overpayment. Should I ask about the money that's missing from my check?
Part of me feels that this wasn't a conscious attempt to right the wrong of my overpayment, but was just another wage processing error. I don't know if that really makes any difference in how I should handle this situation. Advice on how to proceed would be appreciated!
