Why are my teeth turning yellow?

I am a 26 year old female and my two middle teeth are starting to turn yellow. What does this mean?

Several reasons: your two front teeth are probably a little protruded. Perhaps you are a mouth breather. Your front teeth are constantly dried out by your breathing, and that can change the color of your teeth. Check with your dentist.
The yellow that we see in our teeth is the shade of the second layer of the teeth called dentin. Depending on how thick or thin our enamel is, will also effect the yellow of the teeth. Whitening products can sometimes help with lessening the yellow look of the teeth.
