do cold hands and feet mean a weak immune system? i take vitamin d supplements and eat relatively healthy. or likely something else?

Unlikely: cold hands and feet do not a poor immune system. It may be a thyroid issue, it may be a circulation issue but I doubt as you are quite young to have a circulation problem... It may just be you with no cause.
