headlight flicker issues

Good day,

i am having a strange problem the last couple of days. My 03 e500 right head light is starting to act up. When i start the car the head light comes on flickers then turn off and i get the warning right low beam malfunction. then the light comes back on (still looks bright blue but it start as purple then goes to normal color) and then it keeps coming on and off.

the bulbs are about a year old and they are osram bought from autohause. could this be a ballast starting to go or more of the light bulb itself is getting defective? also this problem started to occur after the weather started to get really cold (around -20 degree C).

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
