No, not normal: There are a variety of possibilities for irregular bleeding which is hard to address w/o more details; some common reasons are varying hormone levels, seen in times of stress, fluctuating weight, or irregularly taken birth control pills. There are other reasons as well; if you are irregular for another month, seek a medical exam.
