Having healthy diet, skinny. Underweight?

I am 26 years old, 5ft 5 and weigh 47.7kg. In my opinion I eat really well, lots of fresh food, organic meats and ver little processed food. I eat small meals (I always have) but often. I think its genetics as my mum who is 50 still weighs 9 stone and she has had four kids. Lots of my work colleagues tell me I m too skinny but this size is normal to me. Do you think I might be underweight?
