More of everything! You should be eating every 2-3hrs, so I dont think 4 meals is going to cut it.
Something like this would probably get you started in the right direction.
Breakfast: 4 scrambled eggs, 1 cup of "old fashioned" oats
Meal 2: 4oz cooked chicken, 1 & 1/2cup of cooked brown rice, 2/3cup mixed veggies
meal 3: 4oz lean beef, 10oz sweet potato(yam), 3oz of broccoli
Postworkout: 1 scoop of protein powder, and about 50g simple carbs
meal 5 (an hour after pw meal): same as meal #2
meal 6 before bed: 4oz chicken, 32g natural peanut butter
fat 74g, carbs 312g, protein 227g, 2920 calories
probably a bit high on the protein but its something to get you going
You should be drinking 3-4 liters of water a day and getting 8-10hrs of sleep (ideally)

Yea man, you definately need more food. At 17 you should easily be able to put down food. Depending on what your lookin for, I would say right around 3k cals, 200g protein, that should set you up pretty nicely. I agree with eating every two hours as tyler said.
If you take a look around the 'bulking' section you should be able to find threads on what people are eating to gain. Also google 'high calorie diets' and others along those lines to get ideas on samples.
Chicken, fish, beans, greens vegetables, fruit, nuts, these are a few items to look into adding to your diet.

For me personally Im a little of the opposite as mentioned above when it comes to bulking/off season for me i dont really bother about trying to get 6-8+ meals a day ect. I normally start counting meals leading into competition. Reason being is the food is alot cleaner and healthier when leading up to a comp.
Otherwise i eat when i feel hungry and pretty much whatever i want. Im not a clean bulking person. Maccas,KFC,Pizza is all on the list for me. for example right now its my offseason and its very hot so im only eating 3-4meals a day i will supplement that though with drinking as much whole milk whenever i can with meals in between meals if i wake up at night to go the the toilet whenever. As well as the odd mass gain shake with honey and icecream! ect
I found i get my best gains in size when trying to get as much carbs and fats down me as possible instead of increasing protein. Dont get me wrong i still try to get protein in some form with my meals but that is not my main concern.
with your age combined with training hard and heavy with a little mild cardio/active person here and there your appetite should be through the roof anyway.
Just a few ideas for you that works for me personally. Also as has been mentioned go to the bulking section for some diets or search google plenty of diets around. just choose what suits you best
Good luck on your bulk!

I'd do the whey protein mixed with water and 48 grams of natural peanut butter or 1/3cup of nuts. The extra fat will slow digestion and help it stay with you a little longer. I personally wouldn't mix it with milk for before bed. Everyone's body is different though.

yeah eat it everyday you train and on days you don't train just don't have the post workout meal (shake and simple carbs)
Also you could probably do like 2 cheat meals a week where you just eat whatever you want.
Eat like that for a month or two and see what kind of gains you get from that program and if you need to tweak it post back in here, I'm subscribed and I can help you some more.
We can bump your carbs up higher by adding in some fruit into your oats, bumping your brown rice up to 2 cups per meal, etc, etc,...
