Fourbanger - that is not unusual at all, that is pretty much what fret leveling is about to some degree. Sometimes it is due to a fret that has lifted a little at one end - try a thin piece of paper, you might find it slips under the side of #6 at the low E end. Or tap with a finger nail across the fret, it will sound different, "tick,tick" instead of a deader "thump, thump. Don't tap it in, tapping metal anywhere but at the end makes it want to curl up(peening), the opposite of what you want. Safer to figure out a way to apply a little pressure with a clamp or such,squirt a little Super glue under there and immediatly clamp. * The gel stuff gives you more time to work. Sand a radius into a block of wood using something about the size of a large coffee can, then the two ends of the block will contact the ends of the fret before contacting in the middle, due to the smaller radius of the block. G-luck. This is no big deal, happens all the time.
