Most certainly.  Literally everything you do online, unless you are on an evolution plan, is data usage.

Here is a link to an article which describes how to figure out how much data you may be using via streaming radio, including Pandora, depending on certain factors to do with how you are doing this.
May help you figure out if you need to avoid streaming radio altogether or how much to limit it if you need to.
