Is idling at 600 rpm normal?

Hello, I just picked up my car from the dealership to have the headlight replaced cause it was malfunctioning! On my way home noticed the car was idling at 600 rpm and when driving on first gear, coming to a stop the car drops to 600 rpm! Should I take it back to dealer? Before it went in the dealer rpm always was around 900-1000!

Mine is around there. 900-1000 is abnormal.

Not sure this is abnormal, unless it's doing it even when you're driving/accelerating. After I start the car, I wait for all the valves to close. It sits around 900-1000 for about 1 minute, then drops to 600, which is when I take off.

600 rpm is normal for idle after the car is warmed up.

Initial cold starts have different things going on to speed up warming up process for emissions purposes.

When Im stopping at a red light and the rpm goes down to 600 the car vibrates, nothing crazy, but still noticeable! Is that normal too?
I don't know if Im tripping or not 😅

You're tripping. If you have a warranty - you don't have anything to worry about.
