Questions but no answers

Sometimes I find myself wondering if I should see a counselor or someone, which I find sort of strange. Do most people question their mental health? I never did before I started taking psychology courses, but I didn't even know what psychology was before is it just me "seeing" things or do I really need some therapy?   *sigh*  And I'm too embarassed/uncertain/afraid to ask my parents if I can see someone. "What would they think" and "what would I tell them" are questions I ask myself when ever I think about it.  =\
