I recently noted that usually when I enchant in my enchantment table it gives me 2-3 free enchantments along with the actual one. For example, I enchanted a book to loyalty III and got sweeping edge II and power IV along with it. Also I enchanted my bow to infinity and got flame for free.

Is this normal?

Yes. The chance to get extra enchantments increases when enchanting at a higher level (more bookshelves in the enchanting setup, picking the three pieces of lapis instead of one). The tooltips always display only the first possible enchantment.
