Will the army except me for Infantry or any other jobs that involve fighting?

I am 5'5" and I weigh 105 lbs. I am starting to work out so I can gain weight and muscle at the same time. I am also 18 years of age. What if you don't know what you want to do in the army? Will they put you where you are the best at?
