No: I think you are asking about having some urine leak out prior to reaching the toilet. If so, no, it is not normal for that to happen. This is a form of incontinence and -depending on what the cause is - can often be improved with a medication or other type of treatment. I recommend you see your doctor so he or she can ask you more details about your symptoms.
