You are young to be suffering with back pains. At your age these pains are not likely to be serious and not related to the backache your family members suffer.
They are probably muscular. I suggest you take paracetamol and ibuprofen for the pain but make sure you take these under adult supervision. If your pain lasts more than a week, you may benefit from physiotherapy to strengthen your core muscles.
I hope you feel better soon.
