Is it normal for brakes to click or pop upon reversing directions in a Honda Accord?

No it is not normal. I am not a mechanic but whenever my brakes make a clicking sound or poping sound, I think there might be something loose or stuck in the brakes. The first thing I would do is elimante other noise sources such as ball joints, etc. Then I would have someone walk beside the vehicle while I reversed to pinpoint if the noise is from the rear or front. Chances are it is the rear brakes if they are drum brakes. Sometimes, it is also a sticking brake shoe that is okay when the wheel goes forward but gets caught for a second when the wheel goes in reverse. My advice is that if you have not worked on brakes before, see a mechanic. An adjustment might be all you need.
