Premature graying

Hello I am 15 year old male, and I have been getting quite a few gray hairs recently. I have been on accutane about 2 years ago, and was on steroids (methylprednisone) about a year and a half ago due to allergies that were ruining my life. I do not have a family history of premature graying. I literally have like 20 strands though. I read up on it, and it said I could have hyperthyroid, b12 deficiency, or autoimmune disease. I had a CBC, but don't know if it included a thyroid panel. I take 1600mcg's of b12 a day. And I was tested for antibodies which came back negative. I do not know...hopefully I do not start losing my hair I think I am going to get PABA pills.
