First step is to be sure your juvenile records in Wash. are sealed. Second step is to check with local counsel down your way-it should be gratis.

Yes. First of all a juvenile conviction would not prevent you from owning a firearm (there are a few non-relevant exception) Second of all, only a criminal conviction would affect your gun rights, and your case was dropped. You're good to go for a background check.

You should have an attorney run a background check first and then have them review the local requirements. Good luck.

Just submit a Personal Firearms Eligibility Check (PFEC) with the California DOJ along with $20 and they will tell your status for sure. But based on what you said you should be ok.
