Sometimes the display acts weird:

Then it goes away after sometime, only to come back later. Any clue? Shall I send back the notebook -- anyone with experience? Shall I get a ticket before sending back the notebook (cant visit a store in person).

the notebook is less than a week old!

Call Apple and explain to them what you're experiencing. They will more than likely have you send it back to have the screen replaced if they can't pinpoint a hardware/software issue. Good luck.

Yep if its only a week old the next call i make would be Apple as ImageX has mentioned. Then they can make the judgment. Mind you if needs to be sent away you could have no Mac for a cpl of weeks even if they do say a 7 day turn around.

If there is an Apple Store close I would take it in, or call like the others have suggested. Looks like the display panel is defective of the cable loose.
