Yes this is normal. Most girl babies tend to have some sticky secretions from the genitals around 2-7 days of life. This happens due to the decreasing levels of the maternal hormones in the baby’s blood after delivery. Just keep the area clean and it will resolve soon.

This is normal and usually happens in the first week of life in female newborns. Please keep the area clean by wiping with every diaper change.
