In brief: R/o physical symptom

Fatigue can be a symptom of depression, physical ailment or both.
In order to diagnose depression, physical problems need to be ruled out. I would recommend going to your primary care doctor and have a full check up. If everything is fine, or if there's a physical ailment, i would still recommend contacting mental health provider to help you cope with your symptoms.
