There was a way to bruteforce Kik accounts that some of my contacts managed to pull off, but this doesn't seem like your account is compromised. If you have a iPhone, a unicode "attack" can render Kik useless. I believe there is one for Android as well, but if this dude asked on Kik what your username is, he's a idiot when he could just look at your profile. lol.
