Is my laptop overheating?

I just got my laptop for school and I noticed that when I was just web browsing, my cpu temp was reaching 65-70 celcius. I just have it on my desk but it is hot to the touch. CPU usage is at 15%. I turned on comfort mode (which increases fan speed and decreases cpu speed) and it is still hot but only around 50 degrees. After I lifted it off my desk for a bit it was down to 45. I am a bit concerned about this but I want to know if this is normal?

No, this isn’t really normal.

This isn’t really normal. This might be because a bad motherboard or maybe even a bad power adapter? You said your school gave this to you so maybe it was used by other students? Other than that, so it isn't really normal.

Check Task Manager

Generally, this temperature is normal for a laptop. However, it may be possible that some other programs are running in the background. Simply open the task manager and end the unnecessary tasks.
