Line between ribcage? (Photo)

I was wondering if a line between your ribcage is normal and if it isn't, what steps can I take to diminish or remove it. I am 5'3 and 134 pounds, I am on a workout regimen for weight loss, would that help it? I've seen girls heavier than me who don't have it. Is it because of loose skin? I am a bit self conscious about it and would love some input! Thank you :)

Yes that is normal and is a natural crease corresponding to underlying muscle and fascia.  Many people consider it very attractive.
