Heyo,
Double pronged question here:
1. Is it normal that only two of my four first sem units have textbooks showing up in my booklist (see attached pic)?
2. Is there a good place to buy second hand textbooks online? (again, see attached pic $$)

2017: English, Methods, Specialist, German, Chemistry

Feel free to give me a message if you need help in these subjects!!

Yep, quite normal for booklists not to be put up until a bit later. Welcome to uni - things are often late or poorly organised ;)

Re: secondhand books - I've managed to get books new for quite cheap from book depository, but I think places like gumtree and facebook marketplace would be good.

1. I believe that picture shows three units. At this stage, since semester hasn't started, that's fairly normal. Some units confirm all their books about a week or two before semester. Some units may not even have textbooks, so it's possible that this might even be the final list. Would advise that you see if you even need these textbooks, using either Monash University Subjecct Reviews and Ratings or waiting a week into semester until you buy anything (and possibly loaning the textbooks earlier if you need a copy in the meantime). 

2. There's a few, with Monash Marketplace no longer running. I forget where the list is, but:
- Student VIP
- Book Depository
- The Campus Bookstore
- your typical second-hand book online sites
