In brief: Possibly hirsute sum

For a female this is often a symptom of overproduction of androgen, or male-type hormones.
A condition caused polycystic ovarian disorder often causes these symptoms, along with very sporadic menstrual cycles. Check this out with your doctor; typical evaluation may include hormone levels and a pelvic ultrasound. Good luck!

In brief: Various

Common causes would be poor nutrition, and too many calories for your level of activity.
A rare cause would be over active adrenal glands and cushings disease. Sounds like you need to visit with a primary care doctor for advice.
