Is this a DDoS?

Hi, I created a game server to play with some friends, and other people just started randomly connecting to my server, then by the time I had about 20 people on my server I start to have severe connection problems, the first symptom was that everyone on Discord suddenly sounds like a robot, then everyone on the game server complains about lag and suddenly half the server gets kicked for Steam Auth: Failed. The computer is brand new, my internet is 200Mbps Down/100Mbps Up fiber so I knew it wasn't about my specs or connection and after some google searches I was sure I am being DDoS'ed. When I look at Wireshark I see a lot of 67 byte connections from random IPs with Source Engine Querry, but maybe I get that every time a player gets my server visible from their ingame server browser? The game is Rust, by the way.!VQIglK6S!Jn01mSUmTR...

It does seem your gameserver is attacked by "Source Engine Query" packets which are part of the libraries used by steam
