Three days old...take it back to Apple.
I see the link is necro'd (much like this thread).

They disabled hardware acceleration in Chrome browser. Have you tried that?

I have problem like that. Fight with Apple in last 4 months. They sending me new advice like: update system, we checked and all is cool etc. After many contacts and diagnistics... today they told me that problem is because of Mojave and I have to install Catalina.
It’s really help???
One sometimes two second, lines in diffrent part of screen.. Few times per minute sometimes...
I don’t know what to do...

That definitely isn't software. Something is wrong with the computer hardware wise. That kind of regular pattern may be indicative of something wrong with the GPU.

Sounds like they're trying to run out the warranty. Demand they replace it ASAP.

And if you still don't get a fix that's satisfactory to you, email Tim Cook himself at tcook@apple.com. Explain to him the situation with as many details as to what's happening and what support has told you along with a good way to contact you (include a phone number). Some users have said that things have been fast-tracked big time after emailing him.
