Bad pot

(Bad pun)
We bought this cast iron pot / Dutch oven a few days ago. Since then we've used it twice where we fill it with water and leave it on our wood stove so it puts some moisture into the air. Think of it as a multi-purpose humidifier. Anyway, after one use it started rusting a bit, after two uses the entire bottom of the pot looks destroyed. Is this normal?
