Hiii mam,
Welcome to health care magic.
Try to relax. Cool down.
Your age is 19yrs and you have missed period for 16 days.
Also You have irregular period for past 3 months.
I think you are suffering from "OLIGOMENORRHOEA".
It has several causes.
1) PCOD with Over wt
2) Hypothyroidism
3) Stress, anxiety
4) Eating disorder with under wt
So need to investigate properly.
Do the following test USG, LH/FSH level, Thyroid study, Blood prolactin and sugar with consultation of gynecologist.
Do regular exercise,take healthy diet.
Avoid stress with yoga & meditation.
All the best.
