That likely means that there are no reported credit accounts in your name showing in any of the credit bureaus.  Please read the articles here to learn how to build your credit file, and your credit score.  The more credit you have available, the higher your score can go.  Also, make it a habit to check all three credit scores annually to make sure all information is corret.
