Yes.

"Check out" is perhaps a misleading name.

What check out it does is get you a local copy of what's currently in
the repository on the server along with some book keeping information
allowing you to send any changes you make on your local copy back to
the repository when you're ready. (That's called "commit" or sometimes
"check in".)

Pulling down a local copy from the server doesn't change what's stored
on the server in any way. Only when you commit changes to the server
is a new revision created.

Consider some quality time with the SVN book.
