No. Thinking too much does not affect the rate of hair growth or hair loss in any way. At 4 months it is still normal to not see any changes yet, for many it takes 6+ months.

Hair loss after a hair transplant often is caused by shock loss, or acceleration of your normal hair loss process. see below

There is no medical evidence that overthinking can cause issues with a transplant. However you are only at the 4 month stage. Around the 3-4 month stage you should start to see stubble. It is still very early to see significant changes in most transplants. In my opinion you should relax and wait a couple of more months to see if there are any further changes. However  it does take a year or so for a full result.
