In brief: At your age, no

Lesions on the pancreas can be serious, but in young people are usually not.
It may be a cyst or may be a dilated common bile duct due to an obstruction such as a gallstone. You should not be too worried, but you do need to get it further evaluated, usually with an endoscopic ultrasound exam or a repeat scan.
