Sometimes, i'll be quietly minding my own business when my ears start to ring, anyone else have this problem?

That's tinnitus (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tinnitus), aye? I have it occasionally, but it never bothered me much.

Yeah I have it quite often, I assume it's because I listen to music on top volume all the time and go to concerts.

Yeah it sounds like tinnitus, this (http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/tinnitus/Pages/introduction.aspx) explains it a little more easily than wiki. If you're only getting it occasionally then yeah, its annoying for a while but it should go away. If it becomes constant I'd recommend definitely seeing a doctor. You wouldn't imagine that a ringing in your ears could ruin lives but god damn does it make shit difficult.

I'd try to take more care of what volume you listen to music at and keeping ear protection on if you work with loud machinery etc. (you're 13 so I doubt you are, but just for future reference). It's all well and good having fun now but if you keep damaging your ears and the tinnitus progresses to become constant then there are cases of it causing depression, insomnia and even people committing suicide because you literally can't get away from it. It's not something to take lightly.

yea, agree with Desuetude

try to take more care and if the problem gets worse (or you want to regardless) go see a doctor
