Is this a Police Record?

The fact that you are stopped and searched does not mean that you are under arrest or have done anything wrong.

The stop and search process requires the officer to record the details of the search and then offer you a receipt, so that, if desired, you can arrange to receive a paper copy of the information. This does not amount to you having a police record.
