Yes this is normal, you may have a color LCD display but there's also a edge lighting ring around it, so it's going to be brighter around the edges especially when displaying nothing but blackness.  Remember, it's not a 8K display with Dolby Vision and HDR10, it's a cheap tiny little LCD screen for framing shots.  Of course you're going to have light bleed.

@aenriquez I meant that the display works and that I used the cap to better show the halo on a dark image !! the question is the same.... What is this phenomenon?? is it normal?
