No, that's not what that means. You as a female do not get a Y-chromosome. You got two X-chromosomes, one from your father and another one from your mother. You also got mtDNA from your mother.

Autosomal DNA is a mix of dna from all of your ancestors, inherited from both parents, 50% from your mother and 50% from your father. However, what they got from THEIR parents was a mix of your 4 grandparents, so what exactly did you get from what ancestor? There is currently no way to tell you that.
