I'm new to Wireshark. I'm using it to detect if my pc was hacked or not.

I open it up first time today, and I can see some red lines which has these info:

36  15.728607 TCP 60  443 → 50207 [RST] Seq=1 Win=0 Len=0
425 52.346648 TCP 60  8009 → 50234 [RST, ACK] Seq=1 Ack=1 Win=0 Len=0

I'm not sure how to interpret these information.

Is it possible I'm under TCP Reset Attack?

This is highly unlikely. Resets are connection terminations that can happen for a number of reasons, but hacking is very rarely using those. Especially a RST/ACK combination is usually not critical, but used as a faster way of shutting down a data transfer that is complete.
