How much should a 13 year old lift? (For dumbbells)

Im 13 years old and 5’3” and I'm wondering if 12lbs with dumbbells is to much for me (I've been doing bicep curls). I just started lifting. It doesnt seem that hard to lift but from what I've been reading it could damage my bones? Is this true?

Intensity of workout

If you have 3 full body workout per week. 1st workout you can give 100% 2nd workout you can only 70% of 1st workout 3rd workout maybe 50% Will you consider this as over training? Or it should be this way for intensity because you cannot perform at same level if you go for heavy workout?
