Definitely take it back to the shop. From your symptoms, it sounds like the repair guy put the pedals on backwards.

Is your other pedal threaded all the way in and properly threaded?

But take comfort. Most bikes are much more reliable than that. Flats happen, but beyond that you should expect months of trouble-free operation.
