Spectre X360 i7 extremely hot

Product Name: Spectre X360 Convertable
Operating System: Microsoft Windows Server 2003

My Spectre X360 is becoming extremely warm in the bottom upper left. It is to warm to have on my lap and I am worried about the computer becoming too hot. The laptop was bought only a month ago and I have yet to use it for any extensive purpose. Is this just a problem with this model or just mine? And is there anyway to fix this or will I have to buy an external fan?
