Yes, it's normal to have two periods in one month after you stop taking [hormonal] Birth Control - remember that periods aren't dictated by the calendar, but by your hormones.

While on hormonal birth control your menstrual cycles are suppressed so that you don't ovulate, as you don't ovulate you don't menstruate, the bleeding you experience is a withdrawal bleed caused by the drop in synthetic hormones when going from active to inactive pills. Once off the birth control it takes time for your body to get back into a regular menstrual cycle.
