A lot depends on what you're doing with the MacBook. If you're playing games which require a lot of hard drive access and video movement, the machine is going to get warm. The fan is thermally controlled by heat sensors. As the CPU does more work it will heat up causing the fan to increase RPM. That's normal.

Download and install the free Dashboard widget "iStatPro" so you can monitor temperatures and fan speed.
