New Bike, Boroughs (2010), wheel broke--what do I do now?

Hullo!
I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I joined because I bought my first new bike, a 2010 Rocky Mountain Boroughs (i'm guessing it had been sitting in the store for over a year). I'm pretty much in love with it, except for the fact that several spokes on the front wheel just broke after a week of riding, probably less than 50miles total.

I know nuthin about bike wheels, but the rim tells me: "alex rims double wall 6061H-T6 622x14," SO I want to know: is this just a faulty wheel? And should i repair or just replace the broken wheel?

Welcome to the forums! I'm with 10 Wheels, should be covered under warranty, unless there is obvious sings of abuse, good luck.
