Default Normal or fault?

I've got the FZ45 and am currently trying out the FZ38 to see which is best for me. It arrived yesterday and to compare the two I snapped a few indoor shots, just to see what P&S would be like. I tried to keep the settings roughly the same - limited to 400, AWB, roughly same zoom. To my surprise, the colour tone seemed to be very different between the two cameras - the FZ38 being more yellowy and the FZ45 more blue. I was also surprised to see that the FZ38 seemed to produce yellow splotches or weird gradients across a number of the pictures, and the FZ45 didn't. I had expected somehow for the 38 to be better than the 45 indoors without flash.

I was wondering if the colour difference, and the yellow splotches/gradient are normal or suggest I've got a faulty FZ38? I've put in a few shots below (excuse the terrible focusing etc) - the first two show the colour difference, and the last two the yellowy lines and splotches that the FZ38 was producing.
