Yes 

It's possible your house doesn't have actual ground. In some old homes (like mine), there's only hot (live) and neutral.

Damage, no, but it's not ideal. I have the same issue, but I'll fix eventually my hammering a ground rod down and running ground to my room.

 

Otherwise, double check your wiring inside the PC for any cuts (It can happen) or any power leads that might be accidentally touching the case that shouldn't be.

Everything have a store warranty and manufacturer warranty should I bring back the psu because this only occur when I change my power supply

Wait, did you downgrade the PSU? Seems odd to do so.

I guess you use a power strip. Is it a cheap or old one? I've seen cases where the power strip was faulty and there was some voltage on the grounding pins although the wall socket was OK.

Well my old psu was faulty and I don't want to damage my rig that's why I bought a new one but I don't have enough money to buy a good power supply and I said seasonic is a very respectable in power supply and I bought it
