No not normal at all, she may well have a UTI, urinary tract infection. Or crystals that block the passage of urine,  Inappropriate elimination is often due to them associating the litter box with pain, she needs to see a Vet asap

I second the above impression.  We've had girl cats the past 30 odd years and the only young one we had (like your kitty) who peed outside the box, did indeed have crystals and a UTI.

Vet visit IS in order.
