That does not look normal to me. I thing your dog has an invaginated (inverted) vulva, which can predispose her to urinary tract infections.

Do NOT get her spayed - often coming into heat will correct the condition!

A normal vulva is triangular at the bottom, and sticks out more. Do NOT follow the advice this website gives on spaying - large breed dogs should not be spayed before 2 years, to allow their bones to fully develop.

The vulva will swell to several times its normal size as the heat progresses. Right now, I can tell she's in the early stages of heat, as it's still quite small.
