Yes. They do that when they are tantruming. Just move her to the carpet if she starts doing it on the hard floor.

Its totally normal. My now 5 year old did it from 1-2 years and he would bang it on the floor or the wall or really on anything. I just let him, afterall its his head not mine. His ped said it is normal behavior and once they work out their emotioins they will stop.
