Loose rear suspension

https://youtu.be/w5Ai_voGjU8
Hey guys.
While cleaning my bike after some rutted dirt road riding, I noticed my rear shock rotates. I’m concerned. Is this common/normal? I don’t have any idea how long it’s been like this. I don’t feel comfortable riding the bike like this although it’s been riding great before I noticed it. Is this something that is easy to tighten? The bike is still under warranty so I’m inclined to just call roadside assistance for a tow and let the dealer look it over. Agree?
Thanks.
Peter

That’s a relief. Like I said, the bike is riding great. Just wanted to make sure it was safe. Thanks!

Less cleaning...... More riding.

Semper Fidelis (Always Faithful) is the motto of the Corps. That Marines have lived up to this motto is proved by the fact that there has never been a mutiny, or even the thought of one, among U.S. Marines.
