Compass 2010 Headlight

Noticed this yesterday after I was inspecting my car as someone nearly reversed into me on a road. Anyway, inside my headlights I guess it's called the lamp? The part that the light shines onto that has all the ribs on it. Well I noticed quite a bit of flaking or missing silver paint in it. It seems to be solely concentrated in the left headlight in the bottom right area of it. Is this just a random occurrence? Easily fixable? I am only annoyed because it is a new car, I didn't expect something like that to happen.? Anyway just curious. It isn't horrible I am just one of those people that likes things nice and neat. Since I noticed it I will always notice it too. I also don't want this to be a problem that will grow, as I have no idea why it even happened? Thanks

Is it the reflector? In something as new as a 2010 model I would have it replaced under warranty. Sounds like a bad plating job that should be covered.

Yes, it is. I called the dealership. I guess I got them after hours but I told them the issue and how I wanted it replaced.
