Gum recession?! Extremely worried!

Over the last few months I’ve become increasingly more obsessed and concerned about my gums receding. I feel I’m constantly checking them.

I’m only 19 and am worried if they have already receded what I can do?

There’s slight sensitivity pain on my two front bottom teeth. I fear I might have become ocd over my teeth and brushing and flossing too harsh and too often.

Have my gums receded. What can I do ?!?!

That's not bad recession at all. However, I would note that you have a fairly high labial frenum (the stringy bit going between the front teeth) that could lead to more recession than normal over your lifetime. Sometimes these are dissected out to prevent problems.
Finally, start flossing.
