Say 'if an article is needed'. You have to use the passive tense. The article doesn't need anything; the question is whether the sentence needs an article.

"It's pretty (? ) short notice."

You don't really need an article, but if you use one you would say "It's a pretty short notice."

No, you don't need an article. Here's a sample conversation:

"Can you come to a party tonight?"
"Well, it's pretty short notice. I don't know if I can make it."
