New hive: Girls are pulling out pupa?

New hive: Girls are pulling out pupa?

I just got a new hive April 8th. I have just one deep super (brood) with 8 frames. I checked 2 weeks ago and they had not filled all 8 frames so I was holding out on adding another super. Now I see them pulling out (I have seen 3) pupa larva. Is this a cue to add another brood box (or honey?) or is it something worse like mites?

full disclosure: Two weeks ago I dropped a frame during inspection and I have not taken apart the hive since. I am going to tear into it WED cause the weather has been super crappy here in Seattle.
