    On a new bike, the most likely cause is a loose crank arm. If that's the cause do not ride the bike until it's been attended to, otherwise you risk wearing the crank/spindle interface to the point that it can't be repaired.

    There are other possibilities, but given that it's new, and just about due for the free 30-day check/adjust offered by most bike shops, I suggest you bring it in telling them of this problem and any other anomalies you've found. While there, and them for a short course on basic user adjustments and care, so you'll be better equipped for future minor issues.
