Is this normal?

Every time I click on the "Disconnect" button (next to Clear Logs button) and then Click "Connect", the Logs will show "AppStart".

They quite often restart on 'Connect' so that's probably normal.
You can sometimes get a brownout at start up if the power supply(USB?) is not up to the current need or if the usb lead isn't very good or too long.
I've seen the analogue input used for switches like this but I don't know why as a button input is digital?

I can confirm this. Connect means restart. Other reason is a brownout as RJB stated. USB normally has an output of 500 mA which is quite at the minimum. "Heavy" code executions (like encryption, wifi/bt start) often causes these brownouts. An 1 A power supply should be ok.

Should I bother to fix or ignore it?
Since USB is always supply 500mA then is there any solution?

USB can go over 0.5A, I had used 600-700mA not a problem. USB-C can go over 1A (don't remember)

I don't think your log-problem is about current.

Check if it also happen when using 9600
or adding a delay

It seems it is not happening when selecting Baud Rate 9600
