brand new bumper rust?

Just received my brand new smittybilt bumper but there was a rust colored drip on it. Further inspection it was running from under the paint on the weld down the bumper. Rubbing on the weld revealed this. Im really not too worried, but i dont worry about much. should i be worried? or just paint over it and call it good?
