I'm 5'7'', 18, lean, male, 134 lbs, and trying to bulk. Currently, I'm aiming for around 2800-3000 cal per day.

How many g of carbs should I consume? I get at most 300 or so g per day. (60-70 g fat.)

300grams per day is the optimum amount of carbs you should consume every day.

Ok. 300 g then. That's 1200 cal. How much fat and protein then? 60-70 g fat ok?

200g of protein
60g of fat

That's for a total of approx. 2500cals which is your current bodyweight x18 and with a ~50-30-20 macros ratio.
Start from this level and then,depending on the progress,you'll be able to manipulate the caloric intake,based on the ratios given below.
