Hello and Welcome -
My name is ***** ***** Im happy to help you ..SOrry to see you have had a wait.
This is usually normal yes - the time to be concerned is when in letting the clutch up , you get no drive until its very high - meaning the clutch is very worn.
Often when the clutch "bites" pretty soon after letting the pedal up, it means the clutch has not long since been renewed - ie, new clutches this and is perfectly fine.
If you are concerned though I suggest let a Honda garage to do a test drive - they are obviously very familiar with the particular vehicle and will know "by feel" if there is anything wrong at all..
Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..
