No she doesn't kill herself. She asks to be killed in solidarity with her sister Antigone. Antigone thinks that Ismene's loyalty comes a little too late. The Chorus urges Creon to change his mind and, in the end, he decides not to kill her. I'm pretty sure she is still alive at the end of the play.
