Looks like you have unstable shoulder. You will need to be investigated for it. First a X-ray of the shoulder will be required to rule out a fracture of the shoulder cup (glenoid), the a MRI of the shoulder will be required. If there is a tear of the cup rim (labrum) then with key hole surgery it can be fixed. But I would like to know how many times have you dislocated your shoulder?
Next Steps
Should visit a arthroscopy/sports injury specialist
Health Tips
Since you are very young a surgery will be required as there is a high chance that without it you will keep dislocating your shoulder.

Your symptoms suggest that some of the soft tissues in the front part of the shoulder were torn during the initial injury and created an instability in the shoulder. So the treatment will involve strengthening the structures in the front part of the shoulder by means of a surgery. The deficit in the shoulder will be well demarcated with the help of an MRI so that should be the next step in the management of your case.
Next Steps
MRI shoulder and Orthopaedic consultation

It looks like a recurrent dislocation (or subluxation). Initial dislocation which had happened 5years ago  weakened your shoulder capsule and caused instability. That means your shoulder is unstable. Because of this your shoulder get dislocated often in some angles. Severity of the issue should be ruled by proper investigation like MRI.
Next Steps
You should meet a orthopaedic surgeon with MRI.
Health Tips
Avoid throwing and even bowling too. These will worse the problem.
