Oil coming from water pump bolt hole. Normal?

Hey guys...took off my water pump, and the passenger side long bolt came out with a lot of oil...is this normal? I am just curious...kinda worried.

Yea I think it is normal. Make sure to clean up the long water pump bolts nice and use thread sealant. Good idea to chase the threads too.
