first layer differences

Hello Community,
i am new in the MK3 family, but I am very excited. (But first I apologize for my bad English, i am from germany, i hope you understand it anyway)
I have already printed some parts and now I noticed something.
If my part is ready and I take it from the heating bed, you see in the first layer, different print qualities. Sometimes you can hardly see any layers and sometimes you even count them. Today I photographed the first layer from the top at a pressure. One sees it particularly well that this problem is probably more in the middle of the heating bed, so probably the mistake is that the bed in the middle is lower than on the edge.
I once attached two pictures showing it.
How can I change this

assuming your probe height is correct, start with lowering live z until you get a consistent first layer in the center and adjusting the edges with the mesh correction menu if needed.
