That's normal if you're in the *scratch* buffer. If you do C-x C-f and then supply a file name without any extension (say "junk") then that new buffer will be (Text) instead of (Fundamental). If you name the new empty file "junk.lsp" then the mode will be (Lisp) instead of (Lisp Interactive). The buffers that are generated automatically by Emacs are special and are opened in the appropriate mode.


p.s. You can set things like this through Options > Customize Emacs.
