There is a "normal" range of body temperatures, which most people say is approximately 97.5-99.5. When you should become concerned is when your temperature deviates significantly from *your* normal temperature. So if you tend to run hot, a temperature of 100' isn't that concerning. For me, my normal temperature is 97', so 100' is definitely a fever.
Night sweats can be the result of a lot of things. It could be because your body is running hot and you're sleeping under a down comforter. I used to get night sweats all the time. The more common reason is your body is fighting an infection (think the flu), but if you don't have symptoms, you shouldn't have much reason to be concerned about it.
As Scaredy Cat said, since a doctor has checked you out already, try not to obsess over every little thing that isn't "perfect." The thing is that none of us fit the textbook descriptions of what a body's anatomy should look like; there are going to be deviations. Try to focus on things that feel good or do something that makes you feel good, even if it's just sitting in the sun for awhile (getting your Vitamin D!).
