Bottom LED doesn't turn off and drains battery

Hi thanks in advance for your help
few questions
The led on the bottom of my new hero 5 black stays on constantly and is draining the battery any ideas why this is happening?
I have done a factory reset and it made no difference.
Also I have 2 stuck pixels what is gopro policy on That?

The door to the USB and hdmi is really stiff and the button gets stuck is this normal?

It's my first gopro so I don't know if these are quirks or faults?

I am tempted to return to argos as I have only had it a week tomorrow.

Return it for another one just because of the pixel. I believe there an is option for the LED but still, return it for another one.
