Usually after I workout for 45mins I get on the treadmill and either do H.i.i.T or I will run 1 mile under 13 minutes.
1. Am I still building muscle or should I only do cardio on rest days?
2. Am I doing enough cardio? Usually when I run the mile the treadmill say I only burned 108 calories.
3. Do I need BCAA's? - Didn't wanna make new thread lol
Goal: Get body fat to 6% from 15% and build muscle. Diet is good usually grill fish or grilled chicken breast.

2 - Depends on too many factors that you have not supplied . In short its irrelevant . a 10 minute jog will keep you fit and health .
3- If your not cutting there is no point . BCAA for the most part useless .
In relation to your goal you cant build muscle and lose fat at the same time unless your a beginner . Figure out what you want first . At 158 lbs id bulk , but thats not an excuse to get fat .Ka0s :In my experience, doing heavy barbell squats, bench presses, deadlifts, military presses, rows, etc. builds no significant muscle mass.
What you need to really get big is a solid routine which focuses on light weights and cable movements to really force blood into those muscles and get that deep burn & powerful contraction
