If you get a hit and steal a base is it considered a double?

no ---------- Batting average and stolen bases are both statistical categories. If you get a hit, your total number of hits and your batting average go up. If you steal a base, your total number of stolen bases and your stolen base average go up. They're separate categories, and have no effect on each other.
