I went at 16 weeks and they had trouble finding the fetus heart beat is this normal or should I be worried I bought a heartbeat monitor & nothing ($24?

In brief: No

It can be difficult to find the fetal heart rate when it is little, and it is nothing to be worried about.
In 2-4 weeks you should be able to feel fetal movement and that should be reassuring.
