Hi, it's definitely not normal, most people score around 50-60% on their first run. Try to look at your mistakes if they are really basic then probably your preparation wasnt good, restudy the material! . 2 months is still alot of time so you can make things better!

just keep doing it. I've read from other takers that the first time you doing Qbank the scores are low. I started with RX, and average that I get is 25-30%, I get higher score only if I do subject wise just after I complete the subject.
A lot of people recommended to start QBanks earlier, but since you have no time left, concentrate on UW and most important go over all questions you answered wrong and see what was wrong. Sometimes because of the stress you can make simple mistakes, so learn from them.

Man its a learning tool.. so dont look at the score and forget the explanations.. just do as good as you can.. study the weak parts from FA and read ALL the explanations and LEARN from them .. then take an NBME to asses your progress..

I would leave the qbank for now and come back to it when you better knowledge of the materials...I made the same mistake (was scoring around 50 percent) of doing a qbank just to do it, don't don't don't don't do that with uworld...u don't want to get rid of the best resource u have so easily...if I had to do it all over I would probably start with usmlerx to familiarize me to the questions and the use uworld month before my exam
