I would return it for one that works. You shouldn't have to troubleshoot a brand new computer. Maybe see if they will just send you a new keyboard instead of replacing the whole laptop.

Probably the keyswitch is stuck. Use a drinking straw, remove the keycap and use that to blow air inside the switch housing while keeping the switch pressed with the straw.
