If it's still under warranty I would get it seen by an Apple Authorised Repair Specialist or make a Genius Bar appointment. If it's overheating regularly and with little usage there's clearly a hardware problem somewhere. Possibly a failed or failing sensor? It may even be the main board?
If you restart your laptop and hold down the 'D' key this should access the hardware diagnostic test. Run the extended tests. You may see an error message an error message at the end of the test which may give a clue as to what is going on?
Be patient with the hardware diagnostic test as it does take a short while for it to kick in. This assumes the hard drive has never been wiped.
