It's totally fine and no you should absolutely not spend your entire time thinking about code, this causes only more stress (it will freak you out more) which will affect your health and your productivity in your job as well. Especially the latter may sound counterintuitive to some who think "the more I spend time coding the better I get", there is way more nuance to that and its often more about how we spend our time that gets us further. I can recommend this article about human factors and how they influence the quality of our work - from a software engineering perspective.
