Exercising but now gaining?

I'm 18 years old, when I was like 16, I was very overweight, then I started to change my diet and started to exercise. I've lost over 90 pounds, and stayed at a consistent 125 pounds, but now it seems like I'm gaining weight. The scale says 130 but I haven't changed my diet or anything. I eat about 1,500 calories a day and I work out every single day. I started taking up a lot of cardio and pilates and I'm not quite sure if this is muscle I'm gaining or if my body is telling me that I'm not receiving enough calories. I drink plenty of water, some green tea and I sleep. I have 6 small, well balanced meals a day and I'm just curious what everybody thinks.

if you dont feel heavier you are more than likely gaining muscle or your weight is just fluctuating it has happened to me before on numerous occasions during my healthier lifestyle
