How do I get my Pavilion laptop to output video through the USB-C port?

HP Recommended
Pavilion 14-dv0521sa
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have just bought a new HP Pavilion. One of the key things for me was to be able to plug my monitors into the USB-C port so that the laptop would charge and I could use 2 additional monitors at the same time (all with one easy cable to plug in). 


It works with my Dell laptop, but for some reason does not work with this HP one. I think the Dell one might have Thunderbolt. Maybe what I need is Thunderbolt!  


How can I get this to work? If it is not really possible, can someone tell me so I can exchange it. I have heard about some adaptors that might work, but I want to be able to charge the laptop at the same time with the same cable, so I don't want to use an adaptor if it allows outgoing video but stops the incoming charging. 


Thanks in advance for your help!
