When a puppy has intestinal parasites often you will see diarrhea or sometimes you will see the worms in the stool.  Puppies with worms may lick or bite their anus and may scoot. 
All puppies should get 2 dewormings along with their puppy vaccines.  Bring a stool sample to your veterinarian to see if your puppy has worms and what type of worms.
Skin conditions can cause excessive licking or grooming.  Fleas (which the front line should take care of), mites, or ringworm are also possible.
Have a veterinarian do an exam to make sure there is not a skin condition or parasite causing this behavior.

Go to the vet with a sample of it's feces and they will let you know what kind of worms it has and give proper medicine. Don't trust over the counter stuff you can really make a animal sick from it!!!!
