Am I still going to grow?

I am a 16 year old male and I am only 5ft 6, I swim 5 times a week and have a healthy diet. My father is 5ft 10 and my mother is 5ft 2. As you can imagine being short isn't fun xD, I can live with my current height; however that wouldn't be ideal.

Stick with your healthy diet, proper amount of sleep, sufficient exercise, and stay away from tobacco and let nature take its course.  You may or may not have reached your full height, but as you are still young, you may still see some further growth.
