Forest have a measly point from their first seven Championship matches of the season.
After their 2-0 loss to Middlesbrough, Hughton admitted he is very worried.
He said: "It's a very concerning and very difficult situation.
"It's not very comfortable and I am the manager, so I take responsibility for that, irrespective of the circumstances and whether the squad is strong enough.
"Managers are judged on results, so there has to be a very quick turnaround, but I just have to digest this performance, think about where we can improve and prepare for another tough game in three days' time."
