Sure. What you don't want is ABNORMAL clots, which form usually from static blood such as an atrial valve prolapse or a deep venous thrombosis...these can cause really large clots (you'd be surprised how big) and pieces can break off and go to the brain or lung and you can die...but this is very rare in a 13 year old unless you have some congenital situation.
