I found gray hair. I'm 25.

I'm a 25-year-old female with thick, dark curly hair. Every now and then I see a single gray hair making its way through. I hadn't seen any for awhile, then tonight I noticed a silvery strand near my temple. Is this normal?

I know this rather shallow and that there could be so many other things wrong than finding gray hair, but I dunno, I'm just not confident enough to rock the gray if I am indeed headed that way and I feel that dying my hair would be such a hassle. I honestly don't think my grays are noticeable to anyone except myself, and I can deal with plucking a few every now and then. What I'm really worried about is my entire head turning gray quickly and that attempts to dye it will look obvious. I don't color my hair now. My mom, at age 54, had maybe 30% gray hair that was hard to notice and my dad is 64 and is mostly gray; I don't remember them going gray very early.
Is it normal to find a few grays every now and then? Or will I be completely gray by the time I'm 30?
