Bow string fray

I just bought a Bowtech Assassin a couple days ago. I've shot maybe 100 arrows and the string seems to be fraying. Is this normal or should I be concerned. I have been waxing the strings as instructed when I bought the bow. I've attached a picture. The fray is minimal but I'd like some input. It's the strands near the black part of the photo.

I have never seen a string

I have never seen a string start to fray without it rubbing on something.  You might want to take it into a archery shop and see what they think.

I would get it checked out for sure before you get hurt

So you both agree that those

So you both agree that those fibers mean it's fraying? I'll get it checked out ASAP. Thanks for the input!

Ohh its definitely fraying.

Ohh its definitely fraying. You shoudl get new bowtech assassin bowstrings soon if yo ucan.  Possibly go to a local shop of get them online at a few different places. I can't believe this happened after only 100 shots though.
