Anybody getting peen marks on their receiver?

Sorry for the low quality cell phone pics!

Anyway, I've got about sixty rounds through my TGI rifle and notice that the bolt carrier is starting to leave some peen marks on the receiver. These appear to be caused by the stripper clip guide.

Is this a normal wear pattern?
