Whenever I charge my phone I felt a little ground on both sides of the phone on speaker grille and headphone area. I'm ising just the supplied usb. Is this something I can exchange or normal?

Ground as in a sense of electrical charge/shock type of thing?

Does it happen with any cable/charger?

I would try another cable/charged if you can. Otherwise might want to contact Apple about it as it's not something that's normal.

As stated above i'd try a couple different cables and i'm in no way shape or form an expert in electricity and i'm not sure it's a possibility but try a couple different outlets as well. If it continues i'd exchange it.
