Question A little rusty

I have got a question, I hope someone could help with here, I just bought a new ford F150 this Saturday, and I noticed Sunday when I looked it over in my drive way, a little rust on the rotors which I know will go away but behind the wheel, a lot more rust, I am curious could this be a reason to be worried, or is this normal, I can not recall this kind of rust on the past new vehicles I have bought, nothing I really expected to see on a new truck with only 14 miles one it. Thanks for any advice...

Looks normal to me. They don't use a very good coating, sometimes no coating at all. I'd prep and paint them.

Since the spindles are cast they aren't that susceptible to rust like the body panels are. Thats just surface rust you're seeing and it's completely normal. Nothing to worry about at all.
