    Is this the answer: Just want to clarify if this is default in wordpress

    Use this drop-down if you want to make this Category a sub-Category; you will select the sub-Category's Parent here. For example, you may have a Category called "Photos" but want to add further clarification about the subject of a particular "Photos" post. You could add "Oregon Coast" and "Ice Storm" as sub-Categories to the "Photos" Category; "Photos" would be the Parent of these two new sub-Categories.
    Sub-Categories show up on your blog's page just like Categories, except they will typically be nested under their Parent Categories. When someone visits your site and clicks the "Photos" Category link, all posts in "Photos" and all its sub-Categories will be displayed. Clicking the "Oregon Coast" Category link only displays those post in that sub-Category. If you assign a post to a sub-Category (e.g. "Oregon Coast"), you can choose to assign that post to the sub-Category's parent ("Photos") or not. Either way, all "Oregon Coast" posts will show up in the "Photos" Category page. The only difference is that the list of Categories of which a particular post is actually a member. In the WordPress Default 1.6 Theme (Kubrick), this list is shown below the text of each post.
