Default 2013 WRX hatchback tail/reverse lamp issue

My 2013 WRX hatchback is less than a week old and I have discovered moisture/condensation inside the drive-side taillight. The lamp I am referring to is the one on the outside, not the one on the hatch. Not too much rain around here lately (northern VA) however I did get a car wash yesterday. Noticed the moisture in the lens this morning.

I called the dealership and they said to bring the car in. However, the moisture is gone now. Could this be normal? I have read that it is possible that the taillight is vented/ not sealed.

Pictures of taillight:

Anyone know if this is normal? After googling this problem, it seems fairly common.

I have not noticed anything in my tail lights. I have noticed the plastic on my headlights is starting to look funny.

I'd say Take it back when it does this again or make it fog

I noticed the same thing happening on the same tail light of my 2013 wrx hatch the other day after rinsing it before a hand wash. Haven't noticed it since...
