Pen Goes On The Fritz

I just got the Surface Pro 3 a couple weeks ago. I have an issue that comes and goes.

 

What happens is that if I draw a small line, it looks like a dot and a dash rather than a complete line. If I draw multiple lines in a row, they all look like that. When I try to fill in the area where the line randomly dropped out, it is impossible. So basically the screen is suddenly peppered with small areas that cannot be drawn on or won't register the pen. In some occasions drawing a small line will result in a curve instead of a line. Writing a word for example would look like a series of random curves, dots, and dashes.

 

It seems like this mostly happens on the bottom third of the screen, and when the issue occurs it resolves itself after a few minutes.

 

I've had the issue in every drawing program I use: Onenote, Photoshop, and Clipstudio. I only have a handful of apps on my surface.

 

Could this possible be a hardware issue? Maybe I should return it while I still can!
