    This is my first mac so I'm kind of freaking out even though it doesn't seem like a big issue. I was changing a few of my system preferences when the waiting color wheel came up. It spun a few times and then my system preferences closed and came up with a box saying that my system preferences had stop unexpectedly and asked if I wanted to send a report. Is this a known issue or is there something wrong with my Mac?

    It's unusual, but if you send the report to Apple, just keep an eye on things. You could also try a PRAM re-set by following the instructions in the link below:

    Make sure you follow the instructions for your MBP.. (A battery you should not remove on your own)

    Thanks

    is it safe to send the diagnostics and user data to apple? I won't get spammed with 3rd party info or anything will I?

    No it's safe, and it's good policy. Apple use the information to detect bugs etc.
