In brief: Not really normal

The Medroxyprogesterone is supposed to trigger a period after finishing the dose.
So bleeding on day 12 is normal. But 2 more periods in 6 weeks doesn't sound right. Maybe there's something else going on? Check with your gyn doc to rule out other problems like endometrial polyps or other hormonal issues.
