You are a little under-weight, but don't worry about it. I'm 5' 6" (over-weight by 20 lbs.) and should be 128 - 135. If you are fairly young (teens to 20s) then your body will generally regulate itself. Just eat well and your body will do the rest. It's better to be a little thinner (not skeletal) than too over-weight.

Is it possible for a healthy guy to have 10 percent body fat and STILL be underweight because of a lack of muscle but NOT fat?

Yes! i know a guy who is underweight and yet he even has 10 percent bodyfat. He doesnt work out at all so yeah you can have a good healthy bodyfat and still be underweight from a lack of muscle not fat. I also know about a guy who is prettly fat and he is also underweight. I think you can have a good healthy body fat percentage and still be underweight from a lack of muscle not fat. You can be underweight from muslce even though you have a good body fat percentage. So yeah it's possible to be underweight from muscle ONLY...and at the same time maintaining a good fat percentage.

You are 13 you are 108 pounds you want to be 86 pounds you exercise twice a day for 5 days each week for a half an hour how long will it take for you to be 86 pounds?

Exercise is only half of the equation. You also need to eat healthy. Eat three good meals a day, but make sure it is not sugary of fatty food. It is good that you want to be healthy, although I don't think 108 lbs is overweight by any means. 86 lbs is significantly underweight and unhealthy for a person of your age.
