Low vitamin D: Most likely, the low vit D is causing your parathyroid hormone level to be high. Do supplement the vit D and repeat parathyroid hormone level when vitamin D is in 40-50 range.

Hypothyroid? Sure?: TSH interpretation is based on clinical history and also the circumstances surrounding the lab draw. It is generally agreed that TSH over 10 is overt hypothyroidism. Difficult to comment whether you have subclinical hypothyroidism without a concomitant T4 or free T4 level. Ask your doctor to obtain free T4 and total T3 level. You may be experiencing 'hyperthyroid' symptoms including weight loss.

Below average growth: Generally speaking, children grow a little over 2 inches per year from age 2 years onwards till the pubertal spurt. There are specific growth velocity charts. Statistically, significant slow height growth would be less than 2 SD below average for age and gender. The most important thing to consider is getting accurate serial height measurement with an interval of one year (or at least 6 months).

Sorry, you can't: Assuming you are a healthy 20 year old with normal development, the growth plates in your bones would have fused between 15 to 17 years and that means there is no more height gain after that...
