You are actually underweight at 101; 97 would put you even more so and it's only a difference of 4 pounds.  

I checked a height/weight chart and here's what I found for your height -- of course, your age also has something to do with it, but this chart does not consider age.  

Height                       Small Frame              Medium Frame             Large Frame
  5'2"                             108-121                     118-132                       128-143

I would not advise you losing any weight, since you are already underweight.  

Good luck.
