Sorry, I'm new to the forum and still learning how to use this platform. I bought the car a about week ago and I think it's happened twice. Not sure if this is a common problem or a more major issue. Both times it happened in first fear in auto. This last time it happened, I just moved the stick into the M position and drove for about 5 minutes with the paddles, and then moved it back. It was fine. I love this car, but I'm a little concerned. Please help!!!

What you are describing is normal. If you are in Drive and use the paddles, it will go back into automatic very soon (based on accel/deaccel, number of seconds since you touched the paddles, etc.). Only if you put the stick in "M" will it stay in manual, forever, or until you turn off the car.
