Precum is normal.  Some men might have more than others, especially at 24, but it is harmless and is not the cause of your perceived weakness, complexion issues or any other health problem.  Excessive precum can sometimes be treated with medication such as finasteride, but this needs to be discussed with your physicians as reducing the fluid will not give you the health benefits you seek.
