There's no single sign ( and other articles within H24 will outline the usual range of signs we pay attention to. ) The depressed mood is typically consistently low for weeks on end, not up and down within an afternoon.
It sounds as though you are feeling stressed and upset about aspects of your life, including your family. Seeing a counsellor could be very helpful to better understand what is troubling you and to find better ways to handle the situation.
