I am currently here in the US on a B2 visa and this is my second visit here. I was wondering if I can apply for an adjustment of status from B2 to a Permanent Resident? My mother is a Permanent Resident and will not be a US citizen in 2 more years and I will be 21 by then. I am 19 and unmarried. My mom and dad is separated, and I am the only one left in my family back in my home country because all of my siblings are all US citizens here. I clearly intended to the immigration back when I applied for a B2 visa and at the port of entry that my mother is here on a Green Card (if all that matters).
I agree with my colleagues.

You can only adjust status if you have an approved I-130 and a current priority date. You did not mention any cases filed for you, so you and your mother need to schedule a consultation with an immigration attorney to plan a course of action for you. Do not overstay your visa admission.
I agree with the other attorney, do you have a current priority date? Hire an attorney you don't want to risk aging out and losing the ability to adjust in the future. My firm handles family based immigration matters in NY.
