Whenever more than one atom combines with another it is a molecule! Even if they are the same type!

No, it is based upon the Atomic Number - the number of protons contained within an atomic nucleus is what 'distinguishes' one type of Atom from another type. Variations in atomic mass are secondary in consideration.
