Definitely bring it up with your doctor.  It can be normal but it can also be a food intolerance issue.  DD1 had this and combined with her dropping off the growth chart we discovered she was gluten intolerant at 15 months.  She went from having whole chunks of food in her poop, diarrhea and constipation, to normal poops in about two weeks after we took gluten out of her diet.  If there are other warning signs your ped may want to do a blood test.  Blood test does not work if you are already gf.

I wouldn't give wheat (pasta) until at least 12 months anyway, that can be hard to digest for anybody. My kids had most of what they eat come out whole for a few months too at first, it's normal, but I don't count on those solids for nutrition just practice eating. She's still young, I'd back off the solid foods and feed more milk for a while. Is she on soy formula? I think I've read a good many of kids who can't stand cow milk protein can't handle soy either. And this isn't well known but it's not lactose it's the protein that babies often can't handle in dairy. The PKU panel checks for a very rare lactose intolerance at birth, hardly any have that. If she is breastfed make sure you don't get dairy either as it can be passed into the milk.

A friends little boy was like this and turned out to be gluten intolerant...the gluten inhibits digestion/absorption for him.
