Depends: Underweight if excessively so is unhealthy. But if just slightly so, it would be fine. Be sure you do not have anorexia however. In the middle ages, being moderately overweight was considered a sign of wealth. But in today's world, slimness is a desired trait. It is even more important to be physically fit however.
