No, it's not common to have to replace a wheel bearing at that low of mileage. It is not, however, completely unheard of. All manufacturers make bad parts, it happens. Whichever manufacturer built the bearings for your car may have just made a bad part. We're working on an '04 Explorer right now that has gone through at least 2 bearings/hubs on the front on both sides. And the hub we just got felt like crap and was stiff, so we sent it back and had it replaced before we even installed it. It does happen unfortunately.
