welcome to HealthcareMagic
Please write your weight & height .Any way you are too young & will keep on growing in height & also your weight will increase so no need to worry.Any way for your information the height is related to genes so if your parents & grandparents are of decent height then you can assume that you will gain a height as much as your mother thats for sure.As for weight you can have a good healthy diet rich in protein ;do exercise & you will be gaining weight also.
Take care.
