Can this be diabetes?

ok, so this is what happened.

Starting from last week, I've realised that I'm urinating more than usual and I am constantly thirsty. Though not extremely, e.g. I do not have to consume water 24/7 and I do not have to get up at night to use the bathroom. Fatigue is also a problem, but again, not too severe. As far as I can remember, I've always been tired during the day =P (I'm a normal highschooler after all), but lately, I've been sleeping a lot earlier, and yesterday, I actually fell asleep before 11, which is quite abnormal for me, since I usually sleep at 1am.
I'm also really moody these days, and nearly bashed my piano with a box lid, but then again, that might be due to PSM. And I've noticed that my limbs have been tingling a bit, but that could be because I've slept/sat on the wrong side and cut the flow of my blood circulation.
The only problem that I couldn't find an explanation for is that my mentrual cycle has ended less than a week ago, but no its starting again. And it lasted for a bit less than two weeks the last time I had it. Though it hasn't been even two years since my period first started (I'm now 17) the irregularities can't be That severe, can it?

All in all, the main point of my rambling is... What exactly are the extent of the symtoms?

And as I said before, I'm quite young, not overweight (quite the contrary, rather), and do not have any genetic heritage in terms of that disease. So, I can't be having diabetes, right?

Quite troubled. Please answer.
