It is not normal. Subaru has issues with the foresters and oil consumption. Although it is not dangerous consumption it still shouldn't be that much. Since subaru is aware of this issue and there is actually a lawsuit involving it I would bring it to the dealer. They will be able to guide you best. Also do some research into the lawsuit regarding oil consumption on the 2011-2014 Forester.
