Visible grooves on new rotor

MB done brakes job with service B. Rotors and pads were replaced. Only after 3 weeks and less than 200 miles, I notice that the right front rotor started to show some grooves. The left front rotor(driver side) look normal to me. Please advise how to explain to MB advisor.

Not trying to be facetious here.

But, if you show him the right rotor and he sees the grooves then show him the left one without, wouldn't that do the trick?
