The standard 18-55 kit lens that came with my camera makes for a good macro lens in its own right. I do not have a dedicated macro lens yet, but out of the six lenses I own it has proved to get the largest lifesize images, albeit at very close proximity to the subject matter. OK for inanimate objects but not so good for insects and bugs. The results are pretty good. My version of the 18-55 is the IS kit version.
I would add that the 50mm f1.8 mk2 is a must have lens; for the money you just can't go wrong and you won't regret buying one of those! IF you have the kit lens and want to start adding to your lens collection then that is the best way to start. When your budget allows, you can then decide if you need a dedicated macro lens or whether your priorities lie elsewhere.
