Am I depressed?

I'm a 14 year old girl with a fairly normal life. Nothing too bad has happened besides stress about school and a couple deaths of loved ones. However. recently I noticed myself dissociating in the middle of class, being constantly tired and extremely slow, (seemingly) never hungry, and just not really feeling how I used to feel about things I really loved or got excited about. (Not to mention the excessive crying which i chalked up as teen hormones..)
I've spent hours looking up stuff about depression and people's stories about having depression and a lot of them actually sound like my situation. The only thing is: I don't know why I would be depressed. And because I don't really have a reason i'm not sure if it's actually depression.
