Do I need to download ASP.Net core?

I've been reading about ASP.Net core. I came across some sites that list what's needed. They point to this site to download .Net core that can be used with VS 2017

Now,I came across this site that just lists VS 2017 and Node.Js (scroll down to Prerequisites)

Do I need to download .Net to go with VS 2017 or not?

The question is do you want to develop something that will .net core i.e. for other than a windows platform?  Your decision on what you want to target the development for will decide which components of VS2017 you want to install.

If I just want VS 2017 to develop for Windows (I want to develop a web application using .Net core)....then I don't need to download .Net core? I can just use VS 2017 with the built in .Net Core component that comes with it?

Yes just use the core included with VS2017
