as for supps, just take protein and maybe creatine. nitrean at At Large Nutrition (at the top of your screen), is a good protein so i'm told.
good luck and welcome to the forums! :thumbup:
Next, every other day is fine.
Next, I'd say you probably don't even need muscle milk. ****'s too expensive anyways. Keep taking vitamins. If you're set on taking a protein powder supplement, since you're 14 and obviously aren't starving, just order your basic whey protein from AtLarge or get it from a local health food store. You don't need any special formulations. Just get some whey and dextrose and drink that after you work out.
What you need to worry about is eating, and a 14 year old should have no problem eating his weight in food every day. If you need a protein supplement, you should check your diet. If your family can afford to buy you muscle milk, they can afford to buy you more food instead.
