Sumitting a bug as your first post is pretty gutsy :D

Anyway your code is wrong. After creating a circle, you wait 1.5 seconds. Plenty of time for the player to destroy the circle, so it no longer exists when you create the square for it. You get 0,0 at this point for Normal.X, Normal.Y.

I suggest you ask questions on the forum first :)

Edit: In general, using Wait x seconds is tricky for beginners. I would suggest using a Timer behaviour on the circle sprite, and on creation, start the timer at 1.5 seconds. Then when the timer fires, create the square. The timer won't fire if the circle has been destroyed before then.

Closing, there is no evidence this is a C2 bug and not just a mistake in your own events. As per the guidelines please ensure all .capx files attached to bug reports are absolutely minimal. They should be made from a new project using the fewest events and objects possible to prove the issue is not your own mistake.
