Vostro 5481 - Heating and fan noise issue

Does anyone experiencing heavy fan noise and extreme thermal issues "frequently" in new Dell Vostro 5481?

Noticed the fan noise even under using laptop for domestic purpose like working on Microsoft office and YouTube.  I feel it shouldn't be any issue with those programs for the cause. Kindly help with your suggestions.

Specification: 128GB SSD / 1TB HDD 4GB RAM Laptop is well placed for ventilation
