Welcome to Computing.net!

It is recommended by the description that you have given with your MacBook that you call Apple to have the computer serviced, or otherwise see if it is still eligible for a refund or is under warranty.

Before doing so, however, it is possible that the SMC of your MacBook is malfunctioning, which can be easily remedied without further worry. See this Apple knowledge base article for more information on how to do this dependent on model: Intel-based Macs: Resetting the SMC. You can also try to reset your PRAM/NVRAM as well.

Thank you for posting; I hope that this helps resolve your issue. If you have any other questions or concerns, please post back.
