I have something that I recently found out was called gynecomastia. It isn't real bad, but i have like some hard "stuff", whatever it is it feels like bumps of hard fat or something in my nipples. I also read that steroids can cause this condition. I have had these since i went through puberty when I was 13 or 14. I was just wondering, are people going to think I use steroids ?

Probably not, since most people don't know what gyno is, anyway.

If you're very muscular and vascular, then maybe.

Well, I'm not very muscular yet, but that's my goal. is there anything i can do to conceal the gyno?

Yea most people don't relate gyno to steroids. If you want concealment, try this http://www.underworks.com/993.html or other underworks
I have slight gyno and I find that losing weight helps.

the thing is, I have always been really skinny. I just started lifting and eating right, while taking whey protein and creatine powder. I'm starting to see real good results. I've probably put on 20 lbs in the past two months since I started lifting.

I've been reading up on gynecomastia, and it says they call it "b*tch-tits" in gyms. Also, sources say that 40% of males have this condition. Thats hard to believe. I've never really seen anyone that has it. I remember one other kid having it when I was around 14, but his went away, and mine didn't.

This isn't what you want to hear, its not what anyone with this condition wants to hear. Short of using an illegal topical steroid cream called andractim (which has a low success rate, coupled with possible steroid side effects, and non-prescription in the U.S.), the only solution is surgery. Insurance usually does not pay for this type of operation, but there have been some instances.
