Problem with k-r live view

I got my k-r about 3 days ago, and i used the live view once and it seemed fine, then today i decided to use it and there is huge red dots on the screen, it goes away though but sometimes it blinks. If there is little lighting then the whole screen blinks yellow. Is this normal? Did i change any settings to make it do this?

Go to camera settings and un-tick [bright/dark area] option in menu. Page 33 of the manual.
