Its not normal. Looks like there in an infection.
Pain, redness, secretions- all are suggestive of an infection

Please get her examined by your doctor.
He will examine the ears, see if its infection of external ears or middle ear, see if the tube is functioning and treat her accordingly.

Hope my answer helps you.
Best wishes.
