What should you do? Well, stop worrying so much! Your concerns are VERY common!!!

What can you do about your height? Nothing. You just have to wait to grow taller, which you probably will, since your dad is 5'8". Your height is not that short for a 16 year old. Some males don't stop growing until they are around 20.

Your facial hair also is a genetic characteristic. My boyfriend (who is 25) doesn't have to shave every day. Actually, he never really has to shave his cheeks. He has reddish blonde hair and is generally just not that hairy all over. For example he doesn't have any chest hair (which is how I like it). So, it may just be that you are one of the lucky ones (and yes I think most men would say lucky) that you don't have to shave every day.

Don't focus so much on your looks. In the real world, it doesn't matter that much, I mean, ugly people get laid too! Also don't be superficial when choosing other girls. Don't base it only on their looks. Personality and brains go a long way too! If the girls you like already have boyfriends then you have to forget about them. It's not right to try to steal them away. This is just a part of life.

You're very young. It is very common for someone who is 16 to have never had a boyfriend/girlfriend. Stop comparing yourself to everyone else, because when you do that, you're only compariing yourself to those who have what you want. But, look at all the other kids who are just like you -- single.
