No, leaking ATF is never normal. Dropping the pan on a Subie always invites leaks. I found this out, wish I had never dropped the pan on my car. The blue paste is prolly Permetex sealer that is designed for sealing the pan. Best to take the car back to where the work was done, tell them the problem, and have them fix it.
The shop should have removed all remnants of the old gasket, then used a new gasket, with just a little Permetex. Shame on the shop, if they tried using Permetex only, or reused the old gasket, instead of a new gasket. Ask the shop if a new gasket was used.
