Yes, they're perennial 


They're spring flowering ... usually slowing down and stopping as the warm weather arrives ... then sometimes they start again in the autumn but most wait until early spring, depending on the weather that year. 


You can lift and divide your primroses/primulas to increase their number - this video shows  you how

Farmers leave carrots and parsnips in the ground and cover them over with straw to prevent the soil freezing hard - this way they can usually be harvested through most of the winter.  If a hard freeze is forecast they will harvest extra in order to meet the demand during the freeze.

We'd need to see a photo. It might be that they're just some older leaves that will die off. 


Just a thought - what sort of container and soil is it in?  Have you repotted it since you brought if home?
