You're probably overestimating your activity level, just like most people. I would set it to sedentary and make adjustments from there.
But at 16 you shouldn't need to focus that much in nutrition, just hit the gym and you'll be looking solid.

Pay attention to the second line of his post.
"But at 16 you shouldn't need to focus that much in nutrition, just hit the gym and you'll be looking solid."

Disregard counting calories/nutrients and just eat a smart, balanced diet.
Train hard.
Get enough rest.
