Does it mean that I am diabetic if I tested this morning and my sugar was 163 before I have eaten anything?

In brief: Yes
If your meter is reliable, you most likely do have diabetes, since a fasting blood sugar > 126 mg/dl defines diabetes.
See as your doctor, as treating it as early as possible will minimize your risk of developing complications.
