I am a minor, do i get all of my Federal Income tax as part of my return?

It depends on how much you earned, what type of income it is, and how much you had withheld from paychecks.

As a minor, being claimed as a dependent of someone else, you will receive a Standard Deduction of $6,300 for 2016.  If the only income you had was from a regular job in which you received a W-2, any income over the $6,300 will be taxable.  If you made less than $6,300 from wages (only W-2 income) then you should get all of your federal tax withholding refunded.
