In brief: Possibly
A lot of people at rest can feel there pulsation .
If you feel something pulsatile in your abdomen u need to be checked by a physician who can order a screening ultrasound.

In brief: It's normal
It's normal to be able to feel a pulse in your abdomen.
The aorta is quite large there and it's easy to detect a pulse.

In brief: Pulse in belly
This can be a finding in someone with an aneurysm but its not uncommon to feel a pulse in that same area in a skinny person.
