Today is the first time I'm using Wireshark. I don't really know how to interpret all the information there. I mainly want to find out if my computer is hacked or not using Wireshark. What kind of information should I be looking for in Wireshark to find out about possible hacking on my computer?

IMHO, Wireshark isn't really the right tool for this task. Wireshark is a packet analyzer, you need some security focused tools.
