My Three Digits

I'm thinking of a three-digit number. The sum of my number's first and last digits is a perfect square. The sum of my number's first and second digits is also a perfect square. If my third digit is subtracted from my second digit, the result is 5. If my number is not a multiple of three, and it has no repeated digits, what is my number?
