You need to loosen the tension both on the top thread and at the bobbin for the lower thread until the top thread straightens out. I see this on my own machines when I sew thicker fabrics. It's not a big deal unless the stitching shows, then it's a very big deal.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
