In brief: Contact your doc

A light jaundiced color is not unusual in breast feeding newborns at two weeks.
However, the intensity is hard to judge by sight, so many will have the bilirubin level checked to see if it is in an acceptable range. Call your doc and see if they want to examine the kid for additional possibilities, or just order the test.
