Probably - It depends on how much you earn each week/month.

If you earn on average more than £211 per week (gross) you pay tax

You will not have paid tax last year because you total earnings for the year will have been less than £10,600.

This year you earnings will be well over the threshold of £11,000.

That depends on your tax code.

HMRC will normally tell your employer to use a tax code which automatically gives you the £11,000 personal allowance.

If your employer is using a tax code of 1100L, you are automatically getting the £11,000 allowance. If a different tax code is used, it might be worth speaking to HMRC to have it amended.

No.
Every week, the first £211.54 is tax free. After 52 weeks, you will have received £11,000 tax free.
