very hard cold start but ok on when warm

Hi all im new to here but i have a much loved fiat stilo 1.6 active sport which i purchased two weeks ago from a local car garage,
the car itself is still under a thirty day warranty but the garage i purchased from doesnt seem interested which im not very happy about grrrrrrrrrrrr lol
when the engine is cold it takes ages to start i have to just keep cranking it over all the time untill it eventually starts but whens its warm it fires up straighht away i love the car but this is doing my head in lol any help would be very grateful thanks in advance

Pulling the choke out?

Kidding, of course. Check the throttle body first of all, give it a clean with with some carb cleaner and a toothbrush.
