In brief: Yes

Most common situation would be low thyroid hormone level, 'normal' tsh, which suggests a pituitary problem.

In brief: Yes

First, the 'normal' level is a statistical not a clinical determination.
Many people will have symptoms when their thyroid test is in the lower part of the normal range and will benefit from treatment. Unfortunately, older thyroid tests were not as precise as the present 3rd generation test and we were formally taught that we could not diagnose mild hypothyroidism. This is no longer true.
