Am I the correct weight for my height and age ?

Hi, im 13 years old about 5ft and im not quite sure about my weight, but i think its around 7 and a bit stone. My thighs are about 18 inches and my waist varies but its about 30 inches. I wondered if i was fat or healthy, but for some strange reason i found my self wanting to be fatter, and wondered why this was. Please help, thanks.
