K-r LCD Problem

Hi All, I hope someone will be able to help me out here. Is this a problem that needs Pentax factory help. My K-r is still under warranty.

When using the LCD screen to take photos I get this flickering red/ yellow lighting as shown below. I do not see this when using the viewfinder or when viewing photos I have taken.

I have also included one of the photos I was taking to show there is nothing on the actual photo. These things should not have a baring on this problem but I list them just for your info. The large round object, top right, is the base of a small table lamp. The camera is sat on a tripod with macro rail.

Thank you in advance for any help you can give.

It's shadow/highlight warning, it can be turned off in your options.
