Hamsters,gerbils,mice and rats all groom themselves alot to keep clean, so this is normal.
If you do see patches of missing fur or scabs, that could be a sign of mites.However you won't be able to see the mites as they are minute size and so therefore you would have to bring the animal into a vet for a skin scraping.
