No it's not normal.  Most likely there is hair or lent in and/or around the fan.  You can take it to be cleaned out to fix that problem.  Leaving laptops on floors, blankets, rugs, ect can cause this to happen.  And sometimes it happens no matter what for various reasons, but it isn't common if you keep the laptop in a safe area that it can regularly pick things up with the air flow of the fan.  Also there is a chance the fan could be going bad on it's own, a computer shop or even the geek squad at Best Buy should be able to tell you exactly what is going on.  If you take it to Best Buy make sure they check it internally and not just blow it out with compressed air.  I have had the geek squad do that to me before, but not all geek squads are the same, it just depends on the employees.

No, that doesn't sound normal for it being new. I would send it or take it back to where you got it from. Good luck.

I agree with the suggestion to take it back to where you got it from....

 sounds like the exhaust fan is dirty. I'd suggest some canned air to blow it out
