I'm new to android developing and maybe my question is strange.

If I want to make commercial apps, libraries, or services for android and use Google Android Studio + Oracle JDK (not OpenJDK) is there any problem? Do I need to buy license from oracle?

Yes, you do need a commercial license from Oracle to make apps with Oracle JDK, if you released for commercial purposes.
Unless your development platform is Linux, you might just as well use the GPL licensed Open JDK, though.
