i'm 19, i workout 3 times a week, work about 30 hours a week.. if that helps. i need to figure out how many calories i need to be taking in because i stopped gaining weight.

If have hit a plateau then just increase daily calories in small increments each week until you are gaining. There is no need to be overly concerned with how many cals you are burning each day.

uh..the only way to figure it out is to monitor your intake and your weight...
I'd say monitor for 3 weeks to get an accurate measure
for me I have a 3 day calorie/weight change so keep that in mind that just cuz you have 4000 calories one day your not going to see the +1 or +2 lb change for a few days and vice versa
