Answer
HI Sunny,

This looks to me like Obsessive Compulsive Behaviour, that is usually caused by an overproduction of stress hormones  (adrenaline and cortisol). This may be caused by hypoglycemia - a common illness among young people, due to over-eating sugar.

Test yourself with:
Testing for Hypoglycemia by Questionnaires
  Nutrition-Behavior Inventory (NBI)
  http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2011/the-nutrition-behaviour-inventory-nbi/

  Hypoglycemic Questionnaire (short test)
  http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2012/hypoglycemia-questionnaire/
  
If you score high it may be an indication that you could be  hypoglycemic (http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2011/what-is-hypoglycemia/)  This is a silent disease that is responsible for excess production of stress hormones - like adrenaline and cortisol - and which may trigger depression, anxiety and/or a low self-esteem.

This can be treated by going on a hypoglycemic diet (http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2011/the-hypoglycemic-diet/)

And discuss this with your parents or doctor.
