Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
I have calculated your bmi and it comes to around 16 which is less. But still you are 14 only. No need to do anything as such. Just have frequent meals and take a high protein and a high fiber diet.
It will increase little by little.
With your age, your weight will also increase.
Best regards.  Dr. Anil kumar jain.

Please increase in take of proteins in your diet, that is egg white, chicken, fish. If you are vegetarian then have plenty of almonds, whey protein powder, peanuts and broccoli.
