In brief: No

Fear that you won't find someone to fall in love with is a perfectly normal feeling, especially in young adults, and does not indicate depression.
Indicators of depression are, but not limited to, fatigue, change in appetite, feelings of worthlessness, changes in sleep patterns, and becoming withdrawn from social interactions. If you are having these symptoms, please talk with your primary care doc.

In brief: Not necessarily

Depression involves a spectrum of symptoms.
However, your fear is an important and workable one. Psychotherapy is likely to be very helpful in both reducing the fear and in helping find ways to actively find someone to love.
