No: This is not normal but many things can cause it. Stress, diet changes, exercise changes, weight changes, sleeping time changes, thyroid disease, or infections can cause this. See your doctor if the bleeding becomes heavy, you are having pain, or if your periods have been regular and don't return to that regular pattern.
