as the car is so young the yes it should be covered as this sounds like an assembly error / fault rather than wear and tear - as its out of position then the wheel motion won't be quite right and yes you're more likely to scrub the tyre particularly along its outer edge

its not particularly difficult to fix - its unlikely the bush is available seperatly so they'll just replace the whole arm as they come with bushes fitted
