Your room may be warmer than needed, or you may have more covers than needed. What you described does not seem to be a health issue. If you lose weight, see a doctor. Just try reducing the room temperature or reduce the amount of covers.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

I've started having night sweats, with an onset of one year ago. I wake up to drenched sheets but I'm not overheated. I don't sweat during the day.
Fever?: Assuming the room is not overly warm, and not using unnecessarily heavy covers, this is something to see a doctor about. True night sweats occur because of fever that drops during the night. See a doctor, and for a week before your appointment, take your temperature (and write down the results) 3 times a day: when you awake in the morning, 4-6 pm, and at bedtime. Also record the nights you sweat. ...Read more

Look and smell:
It is likely to be sweat. You can know better by taking a look at the soiled clothing and may be by smelling it. Unless you are taking medication to limit fat absorption, anal leakage is unlikely at your age.
