Yes, it is normal. You probably got some mud on the rotor and glazed it. If it happens again and won't go away take you pads off and pass some sandpaper in between them to roughen them up a bit. Also dealerships sell cans of contact brake cleaner... it works wonders.

It is bound to happen when you ride in mud. The contact cleaner is something you can spray to clean your rotor. It won't help in preventing anything. It just cleans any film off of the rotor. The mud here where I live isnt that bad to clean but clay is a pain to get out of the breaks. After ride where I am in clay I take the pad assembly off to get everything out of there. Sometimes if the bike has sat up for a while mine will squeal a little until I use the breaks a little.
