In brief: Yes

It is slightly over weight.
It is not good for a young person to start out adult life as being over-weight. See this site for more info. http://nhlbisupport.com/bmi/bminojs.htm.

In brief: Slightly over

This is just slightly over. Do your best to increase your water and fruit and vegetable intake.
And get 30 minutes of exercise. You can kill two birds with one stone with exercise like yoga, since it will also help your anxiety!
