That's most likely a hardware problem, which can happen with any computer. New hard drives in particular are very failure-prone.

On the bright side, Apple is good about warranty service, and even out of warranty they'll fix things that they know are defective. For example, my laptop's video chipset (made by NVidia) blew out after 3-4 years, but it was a part that was already proven to be defective, so they replaced the motherboard for free.

I know it's frustrating when anything (especially a new computer) fails on you, but they should take care of you, and I think that in a couple of years your overall experience will have been much more positive.

Good luck, and make sure to use Time Machine or other backup software if you weren't already. Every hard drive fails at some point, and your data is the most important thing on your computer.
