I'm 23, would it be okay to take calcium, fish oil, multivitamin, and a baby aspirin daily for prevention and lower risks of any diseases?

In brief: No data

No data has shown any of those will change the incidence of developing any disease in your age group (or for decades to come).
You simply add cost and complicate your life. If you want to stay healthy, stay normal weight or reduce if over, eat a balanced, nutritious diet, don't smoke, and get daily exercise. Maintain positive mental health & keep busy. Wear your seatbelt and don't own a gun.

Supplements are meant to supplement your diet...if you are eating a healthy, balanced diet, you need little supplement. If your diet is poor/lacking above substance, then it is reasonable. At 23, daily aspirin is NOT recommended unless you have a specific disease. Good luck
