That's not unusual. If you'd like an easier cast on to work with, try the knit cast on that GG linked to instead of long tail. It has the benefit that it uses the motions of the basic knit stitch to cast on so you're practicing knits even as you're casting on. It's also an easier one to knit into than backwards loop so that first row won't be so difficult.
