i really need your help

Hi,
Yes, it looks like a light leak issue to me. If you didn't close the viewfinder shutter then that would be the cause. The variation between shots in the amount of light leakage is quite normal and down to how close to the camera you were on each shot and how much your body was shading the viewfinder.

Please also note that I've read reports that the Nikon 24-70 lens also has a known issue with light leaks through the distance indicator window on the lens barrel - this would be better taped over with black electricians tape to eliminate it as a possible cause.
