For the first time looking at a picture i had taken, i noticed a bright spot, and then i noticed it was on all of them, so i took a picture with the lens cap on and mapped out all the hot pixels. Right now i count 3 red, 3 green, 2 blue and one ?gray?.. In most pictures it's the light green ones i see but the red ones are noticeable as well. Scale map on the left, 100% crop collage on the right.

Is this more than normal? Should i have it replaced as its only 2 weeks old?
How many hot pixels do you have on your sensor?

IIRC, 'hot' pixel does not equal 'dead' pixel. Hot pixels are expected in long exposures, high sensitivities, or both. Some cameras have software correction options for those (including, I believe, the D60) while others don't.

One Photography book I've read (Mastering Digital SLR Photography 2E [Paperback] By: David D. Busch (Author) says that "service centers" can reset those pixels, but that usually means boxing it up and mailing it back unless you have one locally. The other other option is as has been suggested by Hailstorm, use the software to "delete" them. I'm lucky I do not have any on my camera (yet).

I've got one on my D80 and I very rarely notice it(due to shooting conditions) so it's not a problem for me.

I have 3 on my camera. They only appear when I do long exposure shots, so they're not a problem for me.

I first noticed them when I took a photo of Wigan at night. I thought one of them pixels was the North star, and then I realised it was in the wrong location :D
