It's normal and in your chick's case it's a sign it's probably a cockerel.

The redness is the same reaction seen on any chicken's face/combs, just much more "visible" on naked necked birds. Some people think it is sunburn(like on Henderson's chicken breed chart..) but it isn't.

Laying NN hens also get a really red face/combs.. again same thing, normal, happens on other breed hens too.. simply more visible.
