Buliia involves forcing yourself to vomit.

When I was in highschool, around this time (exams!!) I would always get the butterflies, and would hate to eat breakfast because of the slight nausea. It is probably just some stress and anxiety.

As Meg suggests, bulimia is a psychological condition, not a physical one.  What you are describing is a physical (even if psychosomatic) condition.

Stress could be an issue, or just a stomach bug.  If you are ok later in the day, then it is unlikely to be anything serious (it is unlikely to be morning sickness, as it seems highly improbable that you are pregnant).  If it is happening throughout the day, and continues for a while, it may be worth checking with a doctor (if only because it may adversely impact on how well you are able to digest your food).

One possibility may be just that your stomach is too empty in the mornings, and maybe you should eat a bit slower (maybe a mini breakfast, wait half an hour or so, while your stomach realises it is meant to be digesting food, and then eat something more substantial).
