In brief: Not sure

Being a hypochondriac means a lot of anxiety around your physical health status and worrying that any physical signal (pain, itch, etc) means there is something gravely wrong with you.
This leads people to see a doctor frequently despite a normal evaluation and work up. Liking health related sites for information by itself does not make you a hypochondriac.
