Hi! I'm sixteen years old and over the course of the passed week I've noticed that my left breast seems to be slightly indented a little up and to the left of the nipple; kind of near the arm pit. Today I've also noticed that theres a VERY slight darkness along the edge of the part of the nipple that's near the indent. I can't tell if it's just a vein. The breast and indent don't hurt. Lately I've been wearing some shirts/bras that have been putting a lot of pressure on my breasts and I was wondering if that could be cause for an un-painful indentation? And if so, is there anything I could do to fix it?

It's not possible for us to tell you what's going on with your breast. Only a healthcare provider who could examine you could tell you what's going on.
Breast tissue does tend to change shape from time to time. Like any other part of the body, if there is prolonged pressure on the skin and tissue of the breast, that skin and tissue is going to show evidence of that.
My suggestion would be to try wearing bras and tops that don't put as much pressure on your breasts and see if that helps. If nothing changes and you're still concerned, consulting a healthcare provider would be your next step.
