Is my vagina normal? I'm 18 and a virgin, but

Patient : Is my vagina normal? I'm 18 and a virgin, but I've been penetrated by smaller things other than a penis. When I went to examine my vagina today, I found it hard to pull the lips apart enough to see up into my vagina, as if there was too much skin, and it was tight. When I finally did get them apart far enough to see up into my vagina, it looked as if my vagina hole ended, as all I could see was rough pink flesh. Is this normal? Is this just rugae? I've never been able to use a tampon, as it won't go all the way in and feels as if it's pinching me inside (maybe pinching this pink flesh?) and begins to burn and sting, but it resides when I remove the tampon. Is there something wrong with me?
