When I slap and pop it tends to be alot louder then just playing with my fingers. Is this normal or am I slapping to hard?
Starting bass or just looking for a new one? Here's a suggestion: Go to your local music store and try some out.

this is fairly normal, which is why a lot of slap recordings completely overuse compression.

However, it shouldn't be SIGNIFICANTLY louder. Something you'd notice, but not complain about. Know what I mean?
