In brief: Premature Gray?

It sounds like you might have premature gray hair.
This is not uncommon, especially in people whose family members were gray at an early age. If you are concerned, discuss this with your doctor at your next physical.

In brief: Graying/ whitening

of hair is related to genetic predisposition.
Age of initial graying is largely a matter of genetics. However stressors: nutritional deficiencies, chemotherapy, traumatic head injuries, low vitamin B levels, zinc deficiency, severe illness, surgery & marked emotional stress may impact earlier depigmentation in people who are already predisposed to gray hair. Discuss with your doctor.
