No, you won't grow taller from those supplements, or any others, unless your shortness is caused by malnutrition.  Even then, at 19, you're probably done getting taller since you're female, though you might still grow a bit.  Women tend to have their growth spurts earlier than men.  Those supplements might help you add muscle and increase testosterone a bit, but not height.
