Not normal but very common. Very hard to get a "perfect" iPad without light bleed.

Don't worry about it and you won't care eventually. When I got the iPad 2, I had the same kind of bleed near the home button. For a day or two, I obsessed over it and was considering returning it. But after that I stopped worrying about it and don't even know it's there, because I don't ever use my iPad at full brightness and that's the only way it becomes visible.

The top right is the worse because it gives that section of the screen a red hue... :( Apple is shipping me a replacement, so crossing my fingers that it goes away, because it is really bothering me, even in normal use. It makes the keyboard look like two colors in landscape mode.
