Yes the first thing to do is to speak to your Landlord who may be able to correct the problem . I would recommend to read your lease as well, to see what the terms of the lease are. For more information about mold see http://www.epa.gov/mold.

Mold is a health and safety issue. I would also suggest you start with speaking with your Landlord; however, I would do so AFTER reviewing the following document produced by the CA Dept. of Consumer Affairs.
See marked page 39.
Inform Landlord ASAP. You may be able to get out. But most important is to contact LL to get mold remediation. I suggest encapsulation of mold area with 6 mil plastic and duct tape immediately.
