Your assumption may be correct. This can be caused by stress or low temps. Also, it sounds like it is not used to its new environment and may feel threatened or just unsafe. Try cover the back of the tank to provide it a place to hide in solitude. It is normal for day geckos to do this. It should get used to being in the area you placed it after a few weeks.
