My 4 month old just got his 2nd rotavirus vaccine. First time diahrea for a week. This time he already has bad gas with gas pains. Is this common?

In brief: Not common

I am assuming you are asking if these are common side effects of immunization for rotavirus.
For side effects, I'm thinking these are likely (common) side effects. Rotavirus affects the GI tract, so it is assumed any "priming of the immune system" by a vaccine may have a GI focus for side effects. From a population standpoint, it is uncommon (but not rare) to get side effects like this

In brief: Far too common

It is hard to know how common this reaction is but apparently it is not unusual.
Rotavirus vaccine can rarely cause a life-threatening reaction known as intussusception. See http://www.rxlist.com/rotarix-side-effects-drug-center.htm There is evidence this vaccine is often contaminated with DNA from a pig virus. I would never give it to my child.
