The side stand is sprung. Is it just moving on the spring - that does feel a bit unnerving when getting on for the first time. It will allow the bike to sway a bit when you put it under load. I've noticed this when throwing a leg over taller bikes like a Varadero or KLR where you actually may stand on the pegs to mount the bike.
Or is the actual metal of the side stand bending? That would be bad.
