For some perspective, I'm female, 2 inches shorter than you, purely crossfitting not dedicated strength training, at a caloric deficit, and have been at it for less time than you (about 10 mo)... and I'm still relatively weak, yet my lifts are catching yours:
Power Clean - 105
Jerk - 125
Deadlift - 225
Squat - 165

You are way under weight, and way understrong, you need to eat more and get on a linear progression program.
The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will. - Vince Lombardi
