No. Animals seem to do it.

I'm pretty sure there are animals that have killed themselves.
Nope, I have heard of quite a few others who do it, too.

I want to say that I heard of dolphins being known to commit suicide, idk tho.

I heard some ants will take suicidal actions when infected by a certain parasite that uses their dead body as a way to spread, but for the most part yes, humans are probably the only species that contemplates existence in the way that we do including choosing to die.

One of my favorite authors says that wanting to die is one of the very human desires that separates us from other animals
