Yes..it is normal: One side you mean, on one side of the safety napkin...If so it is ok...It just means you have light periods..

Fibroids/polyps?: If you see a doctor for heavy periods, they will want to make sure that you don't have any fibroids (usually benign tumors of the uterus) or polyps (growths of tissue from the uterine lining). If you have always had heavy periods, you may want to make sure you don't have a bleeding problem in general. Sometimes there is no definite cause and treatments to make periods lighter can help.

For some women though the blood only seems to be on one side of the pad. This is usually due to differences in the way the pad or tampon sits. We are not perfectly the same on either side and that difference can cause the blood to flow down one side or the other.

Irregular bleed: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test . There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit.
