That's correct @shinuito!
The random first move thing refers to the fact that no particular colour starts a game of Backgammon but it is randomly decided. However if black is to go first then we skip the first turn of white with a '...' in the notation. This didn't happen in your game but if it did it shouldn't count towards the turn count.
