Default limb splinter?

I noticed the other day that my bows top limb has a splinter or something that resembles a splinter about 2 inch long coming off of it. Should I be worried? Its less then a year old, so if its not a major problem I was going to return it after the season because I dont want to go through the hassles of tuning and setting it all up in the middle of season. What do you hunters think?

Croc - is it an actual splinter of the limb itself or is it a piece of the finish coming off?
To be safe I would take it to a dealer to have it looked at. As for tuning a new bow - that shouldn't take more than an hour or so if the initial set up is done properly.
