BMI is one metric you can use. You are considered a healthy weight according to this metric:

I would also make sure you continue to eat a healthy diet, following the advice here:

That's actually not heavy at all, especially as you're quite tall. Also, the bmi calculator is quite inaccurate and it doesn't take into accord muscle mass for example you could be 'skinny' but also be 'overweight'. As long as you eat in proportion, I don't think you should worry too much about your weight, the target is to be healthy not skinny

Are you healthy?
Happy with your appearance, bmi, diet and exercise levels?

If all the answers are yes, you are fine.
Don't allow the insults of nasty trolls or rude people you know to ruin your self-esteem.

Nope, perfect. You're still a child so I'm not even sure BMI is appropriate for someone your age.

This is vastly overstated for normal people. It's not accurate for elite athletes or people who exercise a lot. But for the average person it's pretty accurate.

Idk if it's proper to use it for 14 year olds. She still has years to develop fully.

For your age, you are on the 87th gentile. Anything above the 90th gentile is overweight. So you are at the upper end of normal but not overweight.
