Is it normal to have warm heat flowing out from the back of my PC case when playing games like battlefield 4?

I have this case: http://www.fractal-design.com/home/product/cases/define...

Please look at the images showing the back of the case. Where the fan is at the top and the PSU at the bottom there is warm heat of air flowing out, more in the top fan. The fan and PSU cage are therefore warm to touch, not hot but warm.

But on idle/when i'm not gaming a cold breeze of air flows out. but straight after gaming it's still warm.

My temps are CPU: 45-55 degrees and GPU: 60-65 degrees.

Just wanted to know is this normal? To have warm air flowing out the back of the PC?

yes, you want the cool air in, warm air out.

Yes. That is what it is supposed to do.
The components generate heat, more under load. That needs to be removed. That is what your fans are doing.

Thanks for the answer! but i have another one: A side panel of my tower case is warm around the CPU area, when gaming! Is this normal? Should it be cold? I'm quite worried about this :(

Again....that's the part that gets warm.
Get a monitoring application like CPUID. It will tell you the component temps.
