    No; it is not normal (and it may very likely not be a menstrual period).

    If you have gone through menopause (which is defined as not having a menstrual period for at least a year when at an age when menopause is likely) and begin bleeding again, it is due to some other medical issue that has nothing to do with menstruation.

    Best to get this looked into medically.
