That sounds right to me. You have to remember your body has not quiet gotten the message that the baby is out and is producing fresh lining to sustain a pregnancy. in the next week it should slow down and also bear in mind some women, me included can have their first period around 2 weeks or so after birth. I had nearly stopped bleeding all togther at 2 weeks and then I had heavy bleeding that lasted 5 days which was a normal period and I continued to get them regularly after that even though I was breastfeeding. Good Luck I hope this helps.
