I had FUE of 2700 grafts 15 days back and now while head washing I find hairs on my gauze. Is it normal?

I washed my head 15 days after a hair transplant
Post op care after transplant
Why would you still have gauze on your head (after 15 days).
In general it is normal to see some hairs (not grafts) falling out after surgery.
It is not normal to see many grafts falling out after surgery (2 or 3 is OK).

Get rid of these hair follicles. After 6 days the grafts are in solid and you can't pull them out. Use a gauze, wash cloth or even tweezers to get rid of any hair follicle that is not growing. You will know it is growing only if it continues to elongate. If it just sits there, then it is not growing and you should do your best to get the follicles out. The follicles will have a characteristic "J" shape at the end. These are dead, non-growing hairs.
It sounds correct
