No, that is not normal. She needs to see her doctor to find the reason for the abnormal vaginal bleeding.

Yes, she needs to have this checked out. But thankfully, most cases of post-menopausal bleeding are nothing earth-shattering. Someone posted here recently that she went 6-1/2 years without a period and then had 4 bleeding episodes in 2 months.

These links have a bit of info and may help allay your fears. Hoping your mom falls into the majority and this is nothing serious.
