Cracks in Slab

Well they finally poured the slab for our new house. There are cracks in the garage floor all the way across horizontally and vertically. Cracks are also seen in the master bedroom area extending all the way into the kitchen. The concrete is two days old. The cracks are hairline now, but we looked at several other slabs in the neighborhood that are a month or two old. You can almost get a dime in them now on those. There's no way to fix these is there? Guess we lose our deposit money.

hi
some cracks are form settlement or other water under the slab and even to much water in the concrete.
if the cracks are split and same heigth means settlement if one side is higher than the other means water under the slab.
did they put rebar or wire mess in the slab have they compacted the gravel first before pooring.if they did not do it may cause crack in slab.
