My bass keeps losing tune fast. is there a way to tighten of stiffen the machine heads to stop this? does it have anyting to do with my strings (Ernie Ball Power Slinky Nickel-Wound 55-75-90-110)?

Centered, Bitch.

Yes, I'm only 14. So?
Depends on what's making it lose tune. It might not be the tuners at all...do you pop a lot?

If it is the tuners, just get some new ones. There's not a lot you can do to fix crappy ones. If you're on a budget, check here.
Nope, no sig here.
Try tightening the nut on the top of the tuning head to make sure it's not turning in the hole.

also tighten the screw on the back of the tuning head, this should tighten the gears up a bit.

If it doesn't work, new tuners are needed.
