Hard to say: We do not know the reason you had all those tests done, whether they were interpreted correctly, and what your history and exam findings are. Without all the available information it is hard to guess what your status is.

18 yr old, CAD? No: It would be VERY unlikely that you have the atherosclerosis build-up in your arteries that causes blocked arteries (CAD) at only 18 yrs old! I wonder what symptoms you keep having that have prompted all that specialised testing? See an internist who can help you understand your symptoms. Best thing to avoid CAD is 1) don't smoke, 2) eat a healthy diet (vegan/vegetarian), 3) exercise regularly.
