In brief: ?why not diet?

While the carnitine supplement you describe is safe at your age when used as directed, it still has considerable calories and shouldn't be looked at as a weight loss item. This is basically a protein powder, so instead, get more proteins in your diet - have a juicy steak, a grilled chicken breast, e yogurt parfait, etc.
You get the extra protein and it tastes good too! keep it up at the gym.
