I am using a 1 1/2 hp pump to turn the water in my pool. When I un-plug it from the outlet , it is some what warm. Is this common

Cool

The electric motor on the pump will be somewhat warm after use, but that's normal. Unless it is excessively hot, don't worry about it. Good Luck!

If you are saying that the plug is warm, that's not too unusual for a motor that size being carried through the somewhat inefficient contact of the plug prongs. If it's easy to access, you might want to look into having the pump hard wired with a suitably sized switch (I'm not a big fan of turing things on and off by unplugging).
