In brief: Usually not

Transient pale-colored stooling is observed in healthy infants and children not too infrequently.
Pale stool close to chalk in jaundiced newborn or child could signify serious liver pathology.

In brief: Possibly

It may be normal but it's also possible that there could be a health problem causing it.
I would suggest having him checked by his doctor; bring some of his soiled diapers in with you to show his doctor as well.
