Oh, to get more specific, size of drops depend on the size of the company. Smaller companies can see 10% dips quite often. I usually try to buy 1% of my portfolio at a time with 3% being a target position, though I have some that are 0.8% and one that is 11% (it grew large, I sent buy this much).1 month is nothing. it doesn't matter if you are up or down in that time-frame if you are a long term investor. Be patient, buy slow, add cash often, be honest with yourself as you make mistakes, and if you can afford it, join one of the services here. It has given me an incredible education.
