The diagnosis of BDD isn't reached easily as part of the criteria involves ruling out other disorders that may better account for the symptoms you're experiencing. The other criteria regard the dysfunction you experience and the dislike you have for yourself. I wouldn't say it's BDD right now because of what I said in the first sentence but also because you're 13 in a world that emphasizes beauty, so these have to be addressed before concluding if it is BDD.

What do you hate about yourself when you look in the mirror?

There is an incredibly minuscule chance that it's BDD. That's decently rare. People with BDD will (usually) obsess over a particular part of their face (sometimes body, but not as often) and be convinced that other people see the problem too. It will prevent them from going out with friends or family in fear of people seeing this "problem." BDD is a very obsessive disorder, and not common at all.
