RE: Do I have a problem here?

You need to tell us if it's the plates getting red or the filament "flashing". If it's the plates, the long grey/black structure in the tube, it's red-plating. This can cause destructive damage to the amp. The tube is drawing way to much current when its red-plating. Never run an amp in this condition.
