In brief: No

What you describe is not cancer.
However you should continue your doctors advice and repeating the pap smears to monitor any further changes.

In brief: Keep being tested

You are doing the right thing.
Your doctor is keeping an eye on this with the serial pap smears. They will let you know if something changes. You can also ask you doctor for more information on these atypical cells to help you determine how much risk of cancer is really there.
