I have just installed elementary OS Hera 5.1 on my 2011 Macbook Pro. I have noticed that my screen now has a yellowish tinge to it. It goes back to normal after a while so at first I thought it might be ageing hardware but after a quick look online I see that a few other people have experienced a similar problem albeit on different distros. This is my first time using linux (also my first time posting) so I apologise if the solution is a simple one.

Thanks for the help

Elementary has a night light feature which removes a lot of blue light from the display, outside the hours of daylight. This can be customised or disabled completely.

Go to the Applications section, and find the System Settings tool. Within Systems Settings, choose Displays. Click the Night Light section and you are presented with an option to turn off this feature if required.
