I am allergic to pistachios, but I can't eat raw sunflower seeds or raw almonds? Are those allergies?

In brief: Most likely , yes

Pistachios and almonds are both tree nuts and can cross react with other tree nuts like cashews, walnuts, almonds and hazelnuts and all of them should be avoided.
Sunflower seeds are not treenuts and usually do not cross react with treenuts. However, if you have adverse reactions whenever you eat them, they should be avoided as well.
