It wouldn't hurt you to put on 5-10 pounds of lean muscle. Get into a heavy lifting program like Xen mentioned. I'd add an extra 250 calories or so on heavy lift days...3-4 times per week. Or to make it more simple, +100 cals everyday. Like a small, extra serving of meat or eggs.
You should definitely do a recomp as mentioned above, you're still at the stage where you can gain muscle and lose fat simultaneously. Just eat a bit over surplus on lifting days, and at a slight deficit on rest days. Not sure if you can do a good recomp just with calisthenics though.
For those who believe, no explanation is necessary. For those who do not believe, no explanation will suffice
You can definitely recomp if you have no weight experience, focus on compound exercises, try to get to 225 bench, 300 lb squat, 400 lb deadlift, you'll have a decent amount of muscle by then. You don't really have much muscle right now, and you don't have really high bodyfat, def focus in building muscle.
I'd like to add that those numbers are a baseline minimum IMO. Shoot for 400lbs Squat, 500lbs Deadlift, and 275-315 Bench for the yoked look. I used to have a different opinion but after training at Barbell Brigade here in LA and being around guys who train seriously, those numbers are realistic for the average healthy man who trains properly. I HAVE NOT REACHED THOSE NUMBERS PERSONALLY, but I'm well on my way and will hit them.
Training at commercial gyms give a false impression of what is actually attainable. The guys who hit the 315/225/405 bench mark look good, but not yoked. Trust me I see them every Mon, Wed, Fri.

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
