In brief: Yes

You are certainly old enough for marriage and conception.
This assumes that you are emotionally mature enough to handle it.

In brief: Maybe,maybe not

For many generations in the past 18 would be considered old to start a family, but today it is a reasonable time for many.
The female brain continues to mature until 22, so some might argue that waiting a bit may give you more time to be sure of your choices, Half of today's married couples divorce,the majority of which married young.If your sure where your heart is, it will take you there.
