Biggest threat for China is neither India or US as most of the times the aggressor is China itself.
From not letting India ban terrorists at UN in case of Masood Azhar, funny bit is they supported the ban on the organization but not its head. How peaceful of China?
Building projects in territory integral to India however if India defends it's territory China starts all sorts of cheap jingoistic news.
In short China is a bully and bully only respond to strength. Hence Japan, USA, Australia literally all major power fear China's unethical assault on business or border etc.
China is a bigger threat to itself than fearing others. If China persists with its dominating behavior it shall be prepared for an answer in the same coin if not bigger as no sovereign country will tolerate Chinas domination.
USA is angry with China unfavourable and unethical trading practices from not letting RMB appreciate to dumping Steel etc killing domestic business in lot of business.
China is also vulnerable as the retiring population is outgrowing young population at brisk face and they cannot sustain there cheap exports going forward.
China is also vulnerable because of opaque governing system and deep rooted corruption. Never know what string shall pull the collapse of its economy and when problems arise public sentiment is hard to control.

The biggest threat to China's internal stability is it's toxic relationship with Pakistan and North Korea as of now. Associating with the wrong states of the time, is like hanging around with the wrong friends. Though they don't stand a chance militarily or economically in front of China, any minor damage by these states can cause a ripple effect within China and it's pseudo-communist party. (Pseudo communist because I find China more capitalist)
China has no threat from the US or India. Infact these three nations always stand to gain from each other more than they have threats to each other.
