Is my resting pulse rate too slow ?

I heard the average resting pulse rate for a 16 year old female is 70-100 bpm. I measured mine and its only 50 beats a minute, I m fairly active not like a sports mad person though, Im 5 9 and 97lbs i havent been eating much (150 calories) either these past couple of days (I will be by tomorrow, 650 calories) but yeah why is my heart rate so slow? thanks to any answers I ve been told by a cardiologist my heart is strong and healthy but recently its got slower

You are every underweight (BMI=14.3). The fact that you mention your calorie intake day by day (which is much too low by the way) seems to suggest you may have an eating disorder. 50 bpm isn't too slow but if it has changed recently I would suggest you are checked again by a physician. btw...Anorexia can cause bradycardia (slow heart rate).
