Bulging veins all over body, normal?

I'm 18 years old. I run and play football a lot, I'd say my diet is pretty lean and healthy though I'm quite thin.

Recently I've noticed veins bulge all over my body. I have one on my right thigh which starts all the way from my thigh down to my calves. And some prominent ones on the other leg. I have a ton of them on my arms as well.

Another thing is that these veins aren't visible all the time. they usually pop up during certain parts of the day. I just feel worried that there's a serious underlying issue that I don't know about. I do sit and lie down a lot as well.

Are these varicose or reticular veins? Diabetes? High blood pressure? And any tips in relieving this issue would be much appreciated
