I installed new packages on Monday. I noticed lots of yellow stains on the hive entrance? Is this normal for a brand new hive? Do my Bee's have Nosema or the craps? What should I do?

If the bees are not staining the top bars with feces, don't worry about it. Not much you can do about it in the short term anyway. Flying weather will cure it.

I agree that if it's not poop, then it's probably pollen. Both of my hives have a yellow tint to them on the landing board and around the entrance.
