No it is not normal to have such heavy prolonged periods.It might be due to hormonal imbalance due to any underlying cause as fibroids,endometritis,polyps,miscarriage in case you had unprotected intercourse and were pregnant.
Just observe for few days as it might subside later.Take hot water fomentation for pain relief and consider using sanitary napkins instead of tampoon use as it can lead to infection.Avoid any strenous activity and take adequate rest.
If even after few days bleeding is heavy and prolonged then consider visiting a Gynaecologist for evaluation and management as you might require medications for controlling bleeding.
