Well since you're only 15 there's a decent chance you actually aren't done growing yet so it's difficult to judge how much weight you should or shouldn't be losing.

It also depends on what exactly you're doing while "working out" and how long you're doing it for.

Long story short it's nearly impossible for anyone to tell you that, unless you have a scale that measures body fat (and those aren't even all that accurate).

It's impossible for me to say, but if you have a gym membership, you can ask them to take your bodyfat measurement, then compare in a couple months' time. I'll bump this for you, in case some of our more experienced lifters care to get in on this one.

The only way to estimate that is by the BFM and that too if you had taken your BFM before starting up..theirs no other way to find how much of what you gained is muscles or fat.
