So I'm 5 foot 9 and 130 lbs. I've always been the smallest and skinniest kid out of all my friends and i just want to gain some muscle mass.
Not necessarily gain a whole bunch of weight, but definitely some muscle definition especially in the arms and chest.
Any suggestions, routines, or tips would be helpful because I've never really spent any time in the weight room so I don't know what I'm doing.

On top of what Trip said, eat! Eat even more than you do normally since you'll be lifting make sure you take in adequate protein and carbs about an hour before training followed by additional protein and carbs immediately post workout.
You maintenance level seems to be just under 2000calories, if you eat above that number every day it can help to put on additional size. Eating, in conjuction with your training should ensure that most of the size that you do gain will be muscle.
Oh yeah, weclome to the board! If you need any help don't hesitate to ask or search through older posts. There is a plethora of info and informed individuals (not claiming to be one ) on this site.
