Web site: http forwards to https causing 301 errors - SEO issue?

Last Modified: 2017-03-17
We have a web service which is https only. The web server allows port http connections but forwards them to https since there are no http urls in the database for the site.

I've noticed in the logs that when connections are made to http, they are getting a 301 and being redirected to https.
Is this a problem in terms of configuration and in terms of SEO?
