McAfee is antivirus software that is typically included as trial software to get you to buy a full subscription when the trial has run out. If there was not a previous owner that activated the trial, then perhaps a fault in the software. Since you purchased the laptop from Flipkart, I suspect either the laptop was started up and registered by another user or it is an error. If Windows started up and required you to register as usual for a new account, then possibly just an error on the McAfee software.
Are there any other signs that this PC was not new/unused?
