I am 13 as well, and I started learning C++ when I was 11.

I think you should learn C++ first because it is a low end language and then move on to C# (a higher level language). In fact, many companies require you to know C++ even if you are knot going to use it at all. (My dad's an engineer for example, and he still needed to learn C++ even though he use only Matlab and Fortran and other engineery stuff like that.) I know you said you hate Java, but it is a very important language to learn, especially now, as it is slowly taking over the world through Android and Minecraft Posted Image

However, if you start to think that C++ is a bit complicated (which it really can be), then I suggest Python. Python and C++ actually have a pretty good combination and you can quickly get out your ideas with Python.

P.S. Maths can be important in games, especially 3d games, but you don't need to be absolutely amazing at it; just learn the core concepts that you require like dealing with forces.
