Masturbation: Yes. It is normal. Masturbation is a natural and common part of the human experience. Every man you know masturbates or has masturbated. There are no health or medical consequences to this normal experience. And, from a medical perspective there is no reason to stop this practice.

You're fine: This is a universal part of the male experience. There are time when you need to do this to stay focused or even get to sleep, and it helps you learn about your mind and body to prepare for being a grown-up. This will happen even if you have a good steady romantic relationship. Think wholesome stuff, not internet trash. By the way, this has nothing to do with your acne; I hope you're managing this
