No, they are not normal, but are common at any age. I would talk to someone if you are having these thoughts. Is there family or friends available to talk to? If not there are hotlines you could call to just talk. They are anonymous.

Thanks for query,
To have suicidal thoughts are not normal and it should be taken seriously as during any moment if one takes step of suicide it is very dangerous.
At this age due to hormonal changes one become sensitive and take some dangerous steps without thinking consequences in life.
So it is advisable to consult psychiatrist for treatment.
ok and bye.
