Sanding Primer

Sorry for the double post, but heres a really stupid question. Is this normal for the primer to look like this after sanding? Its dried for 24 hours, and is being sanded with 180 grit. I wasn't sure if the sanding scratches should be a lighter color or not.

I can't tell by the picture but 180 is pretty aggressive,
that's great for initial sanding, to get something straight,
but it does need to be sanded more fine before painting over.
Usually 400 to 600.
Most will sand with 180 and reprime, then again sand, finer, for
show car work and straight finishes.
For me, doing collision repair, 400 to 600 is all I ever need before
paint, so I usually don't go that far down in grit.
