its prob just the bulb is out. take it to the dealer if your car is still under warranty. they should replace it no question ask.

swapping ballasts to the other side will troubleshoot a defective ballast..bulb is self explanatory. ive seen anything from a defective headlight(internal wiring short) to bad modules..bulbs..ballasts...
