Question Algae outbreak!

Hi there, for the last couple weeks my sand started turning brownish which I researched and it sounds to be diatoms. But now I am getting Algae all over the glass of my tank I did a water change last week and cleaned it off the glass but now 5 days later its pretty bad again, is there a reason I am getting soo much and will it harm my fish? Some people say its "normal" since my tank is only 2 months old that it is cycling is this true?
