Did I buy a used GX7? Need expertise from someone

Just bought a "new" GX7 from Amazon fulfilled by Electronic Basket..looks new, but it had a memory card (no photos)  in it already which I thought was weird and the clock was set too.

So I googled how to check actuations of the camera and apparently it has been powered up 49 times, had 691 actuations and the flash had fired 5 times....

Is it possible that is part of the testing process for the camera, or did I get sold a used camera that I thought was new?  It certainly looks new, and works perfectly, but it is an irritation that it wasn't really "brand" new....I would like to hear some thoughts if you have opinions....Thanks
