If you experience the worst symptoms of being bipolar, yes. If you are just depressed, you are just depressed. Simple as that

Depression =/= bipolar. It's just called clinical depression.

Now, if you experience "phases" of deep depression anywhere from days to months, dotted with mania symptoms (irritability, insomnia, racing thoughts, extreme elation, impulsiveness, all the way up to feelings of invincibility, other delusions, and hallucinations) well, that's pretty much the definition of bipolar disorder, depending whether you're type I or II (by the little you posted, I'd put my money on II if bipolar at all).
