I honestly can't see pull-ups doing anything connected to your height! It's probably been a coincidence! Males stop and start growing until roughly the age of 21! So I wouldn't worry about you not growing at the time being! Girl's start the growth spurt before boys do and stop growing at roughly around the time they turn 18!

Doing pull-ups and push-ups are a good form of exercise so if you wish to continue to do them they will be beneficial in the years to come! However you are still young and growing so I suggest that you don't push yourself too hard!

All the best
