In brief: May be.

Dysmenorrhea or painful periods is common but not normal; this could be indicative of other pathology such as endometrisis or adenomyosis etc.
However mild cramping pain lasting 1-2 days is unlikely to be indicative of serious pathology. More information and proper evaluation is needed.
