Exclamation Whats wrong with my 5th gear?

Ok, i know i just said my car is 2 1/2 weeks old BUT, i have noticed one thing that has changed since i first got it. When im on the gas fairly hard in 4th, and then i go to 5th, i have the wait about 2-3 seconds for (the flywheel to slow down???) until i can smoothly move it into 5th. If i try to go from 4th to 5th quickly like all the others, the gears grind, with the clutch ALL the way down. It wasnt like this the first 1000 miles, im assuming that theres a little slack in the clutch cable that needs to be tightened. Please help. This doesnt mean that im not on the verge of taking it to the dealer ship and saying "Fix my car!!" ya.
