Since you entered US  in 2013, and subsequently changed from J to F visa, your total exemption would still be 5 Calendar years. Therefore, your exemption status is over in 2017 . 2018 you start counting days present and thus you are a  resident for tax purposes for the year. This means you file a form 1040 return.
