Default New boat - Semi-soft spot on deck. Problem? (pic)

I noticed a couple very small areas of about 3" that sink in just a tiny bit when you put direct pressure on it. It's just barely noticeable, but enough that if you pay attention you can detect it.

Is this something I should be concerned about for a boat that has only touched the water about 6 or 7 times? This boat has not had a drop of water in the bilge, thoroughly maintained, and stored completely out of the weather.

Sorry for the low quality mobile phone picture.

Area in question marked by red circle.

on my 2700..I had a spot that squeeked everytime you stepped on could feel it sink in just a touch...never had a problem...the fiberglass decking just wasn't supported there well enough...I checked it several times and no rot....If you could see it...I'd look to see if it's fiberglass or wood...if it's fiberglass..then there's nothing to worry's just a deck flex....if it's wood..then I'd just keep an eye on it ....
if the boat is still under warranty..then take it in for an inspection and's covered by the hull warranty....
