Yesterday i bought a macbook pro from a local authorized re seller of Apple. After some use i have noticed some yellowish light bleeding on the corners of the retina display (left bottom).

The problem is only noticeable in viewing darker images or while watching movies. Should i go to the service center or this is normal?

Yep if it's visible in normal use then take it back. Almost all IPS panels have some sort of light bleed but if it's bad enough to effect you then it's not acceptable.

Kindly check now!
From the photo, it looks quite noticeable. I'd swap it if I were you. Maybe check the next one in the store if you can.

It's a really expensive item to accept defects, and it will hurt the resale value.

Hard to tell with that picture. The exposure is such that all of the white is completely blow out, so any bleed is exaggerated. But if it bothers you send it back.
