Question HID lamp with reddish glow

My left hid headlamp is bright white when lights turned on and then as warms up it turns to a reddish hue. Is a new lamp required or some other problem?
Thanks

Bulb is ending its useful life.
Lots uf good replacement info on the site. Make sure you get the bulb ballast inside the metal fingers. that is assuming it is the same configuration behind the light as my 2012

More than likely it is the bulb, swapping it with the one on the other side should confirm. When replacing the bulbs, you'll want to change them as a pair if you want the color and brightness to be an exact match as HID's dim over time.
