In brief: General guidelines

There are many ways to look at this.
For a 16 year old girl, the 50th %ile weight is 118 pounds, the 10th %ile is 100 pounds, and the 90th %ile is 154 pounds. Anywhere in that range probably is okay. If you calculate your bmi, and use adult guidelines, a normal bmi would occur between about 120 and 160 pounds.
