I'm a 16 year old male and my BMI is 17.7. Is this dangerous? I eat normally and I'm not anorexic, but it says I'm "dangerously underweight"

BMI is a crock and slowly a lot of health specialists are starting to move away from it. But still, a BMI of 17.7 is very low for a 16 year old. I wouldn't say dangerous, though. Mine was about the same at your age (I'm 51 now), and once I started getting the stresses out of my life and taking more control over eating what I liked and was good for me, I started adding healthy weight.
