In brief: CDC Growth Curve

Try plugging her numbers in to this chart http://www.
cdc.gov/growthcharts/data/set2clinical/cj41c072.pdf The 50% is average and of course there is a wide range of normal. BMI should be 20 to 25. Definitely not less than 18 for a young girl. More detailed history on the child may help answering this!
