Well you only Joined CK back in Januray 2014,

You Credit History and Credit Score take time,  Lots of time.

If you look at my CK profile you will see my timeline on CK.  CKSC = CreditKarma Score.   My Score only started going up after a year.  

To move your Credit Score UP takes a Long time,  but quick to drop way DOWN when something bad happens to your credit history.
