Age: 17 Lately I haven't been hungry as before or as

Patient : Age: 17 Lately I haven't been hungry as before or as normal as I'd want to be. My parents thinks i'm not eating on purpose but the problem is that when I do get hungry I take one to two bite of food then i'm no longer hungry but I am also always thirsty and that has affected me in a huge way, my parents and others are now noticing that I've lost a lot of weight. Before i weighted about 50 kg now 43.7 kg. Why is this happening , Should I see a doctor about this urgently?
