Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
Yes it is possible to have a perfectly normal vision of 6/6 but having color blindness.
Coming to conclusions by taking some test in youtube is not correct. Didnt you feel anything since your childhood?
You are normal most likely. But get it checked out by a ophthalmologist in person to be sure.
Best regards.

Hello there..... I went through your query..... Color blindness is an inherited condition that affects males more frequently than females... Color blindness occurs when light-sensitive cells in the retina fail to respond appropriately to variations in wavelengths of light that enable people to see an array of colors. . Consult Ophthalmologist for further evaluation and treatment.....
