Normal.

I have no idea what I say. I don't pay that much attention. It's really convenient if there's a dog around, because I talk to them instead.

Most everyone I've ever lived with has spoken with themselves. I'll say "What?" and they'll say "Oh nothing. I was just talking to myself."

If you pay a lot of attention to it, or try to talk yourself out of doing it, you're just feeding the obsession.

Is there something you're trying not to think about right now? School perhaps? If so, you can thank your brain for trying to ease your anxiety with other worries? Out loud even. :) Then think about whether your brain is really doing you a favor. If there's nothing to be done about something you're anxious about, it might be helpful for your brain to distract you from thinking about it. But if there's something you need to do, your brain's efforts are well meaning but misguided.

Why shouldn't you talk to yourself? You're a person too. It may possibly mean that you feel the need in your life for someone to talk to. Or you might just enjoy your own company.
