I do too, so you're not alone. I believe it is quite normal, as we just don't see it on the daily with most cars. The Compass as one of the most visible mufflers I've seen on a car that I have noticed thus far.
If you're still concerned, when you go in for your oil change, just ask about it. Or better yet, call your dealer and just ask!
