Most cars do rev a little higher right at startup and then lower down. If you feel the pull is bad enough take it to the dealer and have them check the alignment. You may of hit a hole or something and knocked it out.

Ya the higher revs at start up is the car in open loop warming up the motor, its normal.

As far as the pulling to the side, as blodhoundfan says, if its bad enough, take it to the dealer.
