18% turnitin help!!!

I just got an 18% turn it in score and its just showing a few sentences being highlighted is it anything toworry about?
If a "a few sentences" constitute 18% of the essay, then presumably the whole thing is quite short. A short essay is more likely to have a higher score than a longer one, simply because one matched sentence will have a higher impact.

Or does "a few sentences" really mean "quite a few sentences"?

The 18% shouldn't worry you. What you need to look at are the highlighted sentences. Are they really entirely your own work? If so, you should not be concerned.
As above unless you have a big reference list.
