In brief: Depends

You are young and without knowing more information, hard to say.
However, some can clear hepatitis b on their own, while most people have a lifelong chronic hepatitis b state that can be "active" or "inactive". That is why it is very important that you see a hepatitis b liver specialist to determine your course and if you need to be treated with antivirals or have lab tests occasionally!
