In brief: Probably not
Because you are thin, you are most likely seeing and feeling the normal pulsation of your aorta.
Unless this is something new, it probably does not need further evaluation.

In brief: Normal usually
There are is rare genetic disorder that affects some and usually the family history of ruptured aorta gives it a way (marfan syndrome).
But most people who are thin can feel the pulsations of the aorta no big deal.

In brief: No
That's exactly what would be expected.
The pulsation from the abdominal aorta is normally visible in thin people. Moreover, an aneurysm (the pathological cause of a visible pulsation) doesn't occur in your age group.
