its ok.

But its not necessary to pray in front of Guru Granth sahib only, God is within you too, you can meditate and pray anywhere. We 'matha tekh' to Guru Granth sahib because of the knowledge it has inside about God.

In Ancient Indian culture a disciple used to bow and touch the feet of his teacher, same thing here

However you pray to Guruji is fine. This can be done anywhere. When you Matha Tek, it is your moment. You are consciously offering yourself to Guruji in that moment. It is a sacred moment of deep and complete surrender. If there is not a line of people waiting, there is no problem praying when you Matha Tek.
