In brief: Yes
Wheezing is not normal, but wheezing is by definition a noise made on exhaling only.
It is caused by turbulence of airflow coming back out of narrow bronchial tubes.

In brief: Not normal
A wheeze when you exhale is usually a sign of asthma but could be due to other things.
I recommend that you get checked.
