In brief: Yes
Sucking is very soothing for babies, be it there thumb, a pacifier or favorite blanket.
Sucking normally decreases with age and does not need to be discouraged at this age.

In brief: Yes
Babies come prewired to suck almost continuously, not from hunger, but as a survival reflex.
Babies are much more prone to dehydration when small, so they are well served by an automatic sucking reflex that helps them feed even when tired. Baby tripples its weight by one year & is much less vulnerable to dehydration, feeding and sucking behaviors diminish but they may persist for self soothing.
