Beards grow in spurts and stache's are the slowest part of the beard to grow. You will likely get more stache length as you continue to grow it out now. As for the rest of the beard, you should let it grow. Two weeks is just getting started and you are getting decent coverage in the sideburns and goatee.
At 16, most do not even have a starter beard and you definitely have that. In fact, when you have one decent part of your beard developed [yours is the stache], it detracts from the rest of the beard and you can get away with less beard elsewhere. If your brain is telling you it can only handle a more developed beard, then so be it. But your brain just might accept that starter beard I mentioned but you won't know that unless you give it a chance.

The reason why my mustache is a lot darker in the other pictures is because I used my dad's beard dye and he said I could use it for a while. The reason I stopped is because I want my natural color in my mustache now, which is a brownish color like my head hair l. So no, I did not trim any of my mustache (except for the edges), this is how it is growing in. I am happy with the fact that the hairs are covering the bald spots in the mustache making it appear as if it is more than what it really is.
I am very disappointed at the fact that I did not get my good facial hair genes at all like my brother does. By this age (16), he could grow huge side burns and he actually has neck beard hairs by this time. Me on the other hand, I don't even have a single neck beard hair in sight, only peach fuzz which will probably not transition until I am in my late teens early 20's.
I have a few questions. After looking at these pictures of my facial hair now, what do you actually classify my hairs as? In my opinion, my mustache is transitional, my chin is still transitional with some terminal characteristics, my side burns are transitionals with alot of peach fuzz to still transition, and my neck is 100% peach fuzz. Also, I am wondering if my neck hair will get denser and if any of you where in my position at a certain time of your life. The only group of people I can relate with in the facial hair world are asians because a lot of them I have observed have a similar beard pattern to mine. I have observed that people of European decent (like me) usually develop their beard with neck beard hairs, sideburn hairs, and maby a mustache or just a peach fuzz mustache. Then later on get hairs in the goatee area and their soul patch area might fill in. I understand it's all on the individual, but that is what I have personally observed. My facial hair isnt growing in that pattern at all and it concerns me slightly that I might have to deal with a sparse, patchy beard in my early twenties. I just want you guys to think about my facial hair and what observations you can make about it. Thanks for commenting guys!

All those dark hairs in the stache and chin I believe are terminal hairs... also many of the hairs in the sideburns are terminal. The challenge you have is that, aside from the stache, the density of beard is not there yet. You must have patience for your terminals to come.
I think you are putting a lot of pressure on yourself because you are comparing your brother's development to yours. If you were 19 and had the same coverage, I would begin to wonder but you you are only 16 and this is not unusual. My wife's brothers had this exact situation where 1 had a dark nearly full beard as a young teen and the other 2 got their lighter colored facial hair around 20.
I suggest that you continue to grow and watch the progress, but if it gets to the point where it bothers you, carve everything but the stache and chin hair.
