Slanted wire in retainer?

Slanted wire in retainer?

I just got my retainer today, have had my braces off for about a week. The retainer seems to fit fine, a little tight, but the front wire is a bit slanted. It is higher on one side than the other when in my mouth, but when I take it out it is straight. Should I wait a few days to see if my teeth move around and this corrects? Is this normal? Thanks
