No offense to the above poster, but he is not 100% correct. Yes, most edge lit tv's will have a bit of clouding. However, the amount you are describing does not sound normal. If you notice it that much, I would definitely take the tv back to where you bought it and exchange it, while you are still in your return period. If it's bad enough to notice now, it can only get worse, and you will have to live with it for the rest of the tv's life.
