Can't see the image, but all guitars should have a slight curve in the neck. This curve can be adjusted by tightening or loosening the truss rod (don't attempt to do this unless you know what you're doing).
Is the neck bent backwards too far? Best way to check if everything is ok, play every note, in every fret, on every string individually. Can they all be heard clearly? If so, then the neck isn't bent back too far. If some of the notes are buzzing (ie making contact with a fret higher than the one you're playing) you might need to loosen the truss rod.
Or maybe the neck is bent forward too far? Are the strings stupidly high off the fret board? If not then you're ok. If they are, your truss rod might need to be tightened.
Once again, do NOT mess with the truss rod unless to know what you're doing. It's very easy to permanently damage a guitar by over-turning the truss rod.
