Your first screenshot is the block editor. The new editor introduced in WordPress 5.0. It is the default editor, so yes, it is what you "should" get when creating a post.

The second screenshot shows the classic editor, which is often still used for custom post types. If you want to use this editor for Posts (and Pages) you will need to install the Classic Editor plugin.
