Does anyone know why I get these lines.

By default combing is turned on for the bottom layer which means it doesn't retract on bottom layer moves which means you get these lines.

 

Simply do this:

combing mode:  not in skin

 

This is probably a better default.  Combing mode improves your print quality in most cases and also speeds up your print in most cases but it makes top/bottom layers look worse (skin layers).
