I don't know if im in the right forum but I think im running out of stuff to do with the guitar. I've studied every guitarist I could think of. I learned most of their licks.
I've spent about 7 hours playing guitar everyday for about a week. I'm at the part where I shred for 5 minutes,then pace back and forth then go back and play blues.
When i'm not playing im listening very closely to the guitar in songs or watching guitarists on youtube.

Any help? or is it a good thing?

learn theory.
write your own music.
learn whole songs not just licks.
develop your own style not your favorite guitarists.

youre basically saying you mastered the guitar.

You can't master the guitar.

I'm saying do I need help? or is it normal? or just a phase?

I think this one depends on what sort of guitar philosophy you subscribe to.
It's good to develop your own style and your own sound, but sometimes the way to do that is to try (and fail) to emulate you idols.

Well to be honest. I dont like learning songs. Their always a pain in the ass.
I like coming up with my own stuff
And I wont know what to do in a band. (I know play guitar)

well there you go.
get over your laziness and learn a song.

and what do you mean you dont know what you would do in a band?
you share ideas and merge them into songs.

Thats like a Clapton/Hendrix lick but its not around the 12th fret and with tapping.

Around 0:24

This.
Try experimenting with post rock/metal sounds and atmospheres.

BTW, Shoegaze is a genre (one I'm not too familiar with so someone correct me if I say something wrong). It's similar to post-rock and metal in that it's very atmospheric and uses a lot of effects pedals, hence the term shoegazing.

I went as Darth Vadar to a school dance before.

Sure I got kicked out, but the DJ played the Imperial March and I just felt badass.

I did. I dont like downtuned tunings. I like standard tuning.
I leave my settings at all 10's. I switch between pickups to get the sound I want.
One is like really low for bluesy sound, and one is high but not too high for twangy or distorted sound

EDIT:
I dont have any pedals yet
