There's nothing you can do to be taller unless you want to have some of your leg bones broke and stretched. I don't recommend that route.
Don't worry, you're only 16. You still have plenty of time to hit a growth spurt. My brother was shorter than me(I'm 5'7") until he hit 18 or 19. Now he's 6'3".
Everybody grows at different rates. You may be done, or you may shoot up to over 6ft. before you know it. A lot has to do with genetics. Are either one of your parents tall? If they are, chances are you'll be taller too.
Try not to worry.
