I think your’s is temporary mild depression caused by hormonal imbalance, typical during adolescence. Normally it will be gone when your hormone settles down.
Since everything you do will affect your future, it is important not to “entertain” your depression. Most of teenagers find it difficult to handle it themselves, that they turn to others for support.
The best option is the one who had this experience before, who really cares for you, and has good interest on you; usually our mothers / parents. But it could be our sister, aunt, teacher, pastor, etc. Don’t look for it from your friends, they are having the same problem. It will be like a blind guiding a blind.

Good luck
