Post Should I cut?

I have been lifting for around 8 months and have gained some muscle, I'm 16, 5'10 and weigh around 180 pounds. About 20% body fat(from photos I've seen) would it be bad for me to drop down to around 10% body fat? If I do how long would it take and how should I do it? Thanks guys.
