In brief: Not entirely

Usually, a calcium score >100 indicates that calcium deposits are present & that coronary heart disease/obstruction is likely present.
Scores between 0 & 100 are considered normal, but this may just indicate a very small amount of calcium that hasn't progressed to disease yet. At your age, follow heart disease prevention--non-smoking, healthy eating/exercise, not calcium score. Good wishes:)
