Am I just naturally thin?

Okay, a lot of people say that I'm anorexic even though I have never starved myself in my life. I'll be 16 in September and I AM very thin and it's hard for me to gain muscle, so I have thin arms and I have that gap between my thighs.  I weigh 90 lbs. and I'm about 5"3 tall, so my BMI is 15.9.  That's VERY low.  I've been trying to gain weight without eating unhealthy, I eat a good breakfast, lunch, and dinner and I'm on the track team and I do sit-ups every night. I have a normal menstral cycle.  Am I just naturally really thin or is there something wrong??
