Topic: unstable E

I have this reed that sounds great but the top space E is "wonky", that is, the pitch is anywhere from D# to E, with no "center". THe rest of the notes seem pretty stable, although it is all a bit on the flat side as it is new. Usually I don't have this E problem, although somewhere in the back of my mind I remember it means you should do...something! Of course I can't remember what, can anyone help?
