Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE
No, this is not normal.
It does happen though but at 50,000 miles is really ridiculous.
If you had a leaking head gasket, then the noise was during the engine being on (running).
It could also have caused the pistons to "lock" when you tried to start the engine (water in combustion chamber, not compressible).
Did they change the head gasket and check the limits on the head (warping) or pour some gimmick in your coolant reservoir?
