The short answer: No, you don't have a problem.

The long answer is more complicated.

If you write every day, you write about a lot of topics. When you write that much, it can be common to hate some of it.

You have to write a lot of garbage before you can write the good stuff.

Don't be so hard on yourself. Don't worry there's something wrong with you or your writing sucks.

Keep your old pages and set them aside. Fight the urge to read them.

One day you might feel right reading your daily entries, but for now, press the skip button.
