Is it bad to weight more than most people if I’m not overweight?

I’m a 16 year old girl. I’m 5’2” and weight 130lbs. According to a few websites, I’m in the healthy bmi range, but I weight more than average. Is this bad? Should I try to lose weight?

    Weight is normally distributed, so half of the population are going to be at or above the mean. As long as you're healthy, theres nothing wrong with being above average

    Average means nothing, so ignore average.

    Your weight is okay for your height. The recommended range is approx 100-130lb.
