New SH56 exhaust is turning blue... Is this bad?

As the title says, I noticed that the exhaust on my new SH56 is turning blue, which I know is from heat, so I am wondering if I should worry...

I consider that the same thing personally, but to clarify, the muffler technically, I didn't think when I posted that...
