Alright, so someone sent me BTC about 2 hours ago, transaction showed up immediately. Since then, 3 blocks have been solved (779, 780 and 781) but I still have 0 confirmations. Is this normal or should I become worried that in fact I didn't get any BTC from the guy?

Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.

It might be low priority.  You can search here to see if it's on the books, but too low priority to get confirmed yet.
