Opening a new credit card will reduce the average age of your open accounts which is a negative but the additional account and the available credit that comes with it are both positive. Since you're 19 the biggest thing affecting your score is probably just that you don't have much credit history. That will change with time. If you think you can get approved for a cc you should consider it. Just don't apply for a whole bunch of cards at once or rack up debt you can't handle.
