Its normal to have urges to want to masturbate throughout the day. Youre young and your hormones are fluxuating. Its normal to masturbate and look at pornography or other stimulating materials. when it becomes a problem is if you no longer get pleasure from it, but do it as a compulsive behavior, or if it interferes with your ability to lead a normal, productive life (for example, youd skip class to masturbate). I think what youre experiencing is probably in the realm of perfectly normal.

Love joins
Love unites
Love breaks us apart
The power to conquer here in our hearts
Enduring and sacred
Eternal as time
For love, love alone will conquer all

It is normal. Growing up I always had an urge to masturbate, I tried to stop but it's just no use. Masturbation is simply just a natural thing we all do when we get horny and it's not wrong or gross or weird in any way. It's perfectly normal, so no need to feel bad about it.

It's definately normal to feel horny a lot. The only time it gets bad is when it starts like interfering with your life. Like you don't go out with friends because you'd rather stay home and masturbate. Other than that, I wouldn't worry about it too much. You'll grow out of it.

Whatever it is, chances are I've been there.
If I can make it out, you can too.

If masturbating is not getting in the way of your school, family, or friends, than I see nothing bad with the fact that you enjoy it. It's normal for people to feel urges like this, and like you said, you're young. Hormones can get crazy and sometimes you just feel like you should.
It's not bad at all.
Now, if it got in the way with anything in your life, or it stopped taking interesting in other people, than I would consider asking for further help and guidance.

When you can't find your way home,
and when life gets too hard to face on your own.
I will stand as a light through the darkness unknown,
I will walk with you, so you're never alone.
