Well chords are played with multiple notes, two or more to be exact. So both tabs you posted of one note are not chords, but rather just notes. Chords are a combination of notes, while what you posted are just single notes. Note that many bass tabs don't use chords simply because a lot of bass music doesn't require chords (Some does but the majority sadly doesn't) Also, major and minor chords are chords that use notes from the major or minor scales, respectively. So a major chord is composed of notes from the major scale, while notes of a minor chord are from a minor scale. (Do you know your scales?)

Hope that helps

Three or more, to be exact (classical music theory).
