No this is not normal. Could be many things, but start by checking the fuel pressure with mechanical gauge.
Fuel pressure should be above 40psi and hold pressure when pump is off. Test with ign. On, do not start, pump will run a few seconds and shut off, if pressure on gauge falls quickly, then a leaking injector, cold start valve or fuel pressure regulator.
