yes, it is normal. The implant starts out secreting a high amount of hormone but each year that it is in it lessens a bit. Not enough so that you chance pregnancy but enough that you may notice changes in your cycle. Your periods may get heavier as you approach time for it to be replaced. As long as you get it replaced on time, you will be protected from pregnancy.
