Last time I took my smith and wesson ppk/s to the range, I noticed it was shooting sparks out the barrel. Is this normal, or should I be concerned? Pretty sure the ammunition was Winchester white box.

Most likely bits of slow burning powder. Try some different brands of ammo and see if it still happens.

The quality of Winchester white box ammo has seemed to decline over the past 3-4 years and it wouldn't surprise me if you got a batch with some poor quality powder.

It happens. If you sift through all of the ppk videos on YouTube, you will catch a few filmed instances. Lower or indoor light catches it better.
