http://www.rabbitnetwork.org/articles/sexing.shtml Check this out to sex them yourself. Bunnies are quite sexual in general and after Ive had Acacia spayed Ive watched my roomates male hump her incessantly and he could go on for hours. Soooo, it's REALLY important to make sure they are of the same sex bc you DONT want babies! Seperate them if necessary and get them fixed... If they are of the same sex then humping is normal in establishing their roles with each other.

It's more considered mounting, rather than humping, and yes, like Purple-Hops said, it's normal for rabbits, and actually a LOT of animals to mount the subordinate one.
