In brief: Yes!

This is a completely normal developmental process.
Girls can start menstruating very early, and the timing depends on many factors. Be aware that girls this young often have very irregular cycles and her periods will likely not be "regular" for quite some time, also very normal when the ovaries and brain are developing.
