Most important is to shoot and practice, I have never read my user's manual.
Do you shoot manual already, or are you still in auto (which is no shame by any means)?
Also, do you shoot RAW (NEF for Nikon) or JPEG?
Regarding the photographs themselves:
Try to avoid direct sunlight, especially for macro photography, unless you have it as a backlight, then it's definitely something not to avoid, as a matter of fact, try to find backlighting as often as possible in this kind of stuff.
Photographs 1, 2, 5, 6, 7 and 8 were lit by direct sunlight, which causes (flash not included) the worst lighting possible in macro photography.
Photographs 3, 9, 10 and 11 were backlit or were in shadow, and therefore just are the best photographs in the collection.
The best way to look at lighting (you can use this as a trick for youself), is to open your unprocessed photograph in Photoshop, zoom out and desaturate it completely.
That gives quite a great view of the tones and distractions caused by poor lighting.
Check this video out for more information regarding this: https://youtu.be/5pO8a-xQiio

I hope you have learned something from this explanation.

Keep it up!

 

Postscript: I am glad that you bought the Nikon D3200!

Oh wow, That's the help I need :D Thank you.
1)Those shots are mainly taken with auto-focus, but from now on I'll probably try to use the manual function.I'm just not sure what are the best settings for manual shooting.

2)I shoot JPEG, No idea if it's a good thing or not.

3)I'll try watch the video ASAP :) And I'll try to use light more efficiently :)

Thank you!Let's see if that road leads to anywhere.I will.

You shouldn't use manual focus, you can, but I prefer autofocus.
I meant, do you shoot on the auto mode or manual mode?
The auto mode will automatically change the exposure settings, in manual, you can do it yourself.
Regarding the file format, if you have Photoshop or Lightroom, or even DxO Optics Pro or Picasa... something that can open RAW files, I strongly advise you to shoot so.
RAW files contain bunches more of information than JPEG files.
Google it: RAW vs JPEG
There are hundreds of videos and articles about it.
If you would like to get out of the auto exposure modes, check out these channels and videos for certain: https://www.youtube....er/photoexposed, https://www.youtube....?v=YHjJIxGU4PQ, https://www.youtube....?v=zpvTNKZ6Ldg, https://www.youtube....h?v=Ieup6_iNRgU

Thank you!

Most of the shots should have been shot with auto mode but lately I've started to use Manual mode more.

I'll change it to RAW then.
