It looks like the bushings are pulling out.

Yeah it's a problem. Those things are installed into the guitar so youre able to screw in the tailpiece. You're going to want to take it to a shop because you'll probably have to plug the holes and drill new ones so they fit properly.

Next time you change strings take off the stopbar and unscrew the poles that it sits on. Then try hitting the bushings with a hammer so they go into the body.

^ Use a rubber-headed mallet.

But yes, it shouldn't be like that and to fix it should only be a case of bashing 'em back in.
