No....one you download the .dmg installer you have to run it.  Then you'll have the latest.

 

Click on Skype > About Skype to see what version you have installed.  The current version is 5.6.0.143.   That's what that link was to.

I've just looked and 5.6.0.203 is indeed the latest.  They snuck one in since I checked a few days ago.

 

If you keep getting that popup, do ahead and run the installer you dowloaded via the link I provided.  It won't hurt to reinstall and it may silence the pop-up.
