    I have a RIR hen that layed her first egg two day ago. I'm so excited for her! Anyway, every egg she has layed so far has had a liltle bit of blood streaked on it. Is this normal in new layers?

    Yes, it's normal for new layers. Just check her bottom and make sure there isn't copious amounts of blood.
