Fat content in milk

With the exception of a couple of dips in supply, I generally pump around 3-3.5oz while I'm at work (one pump). That has not changed recently, but I have noticed that I seem to have less fat in my milk. This is based on my frozen bags of milk. In my older bags there is a pretty thick layer, but on the newer bags there is a VERY thin one.
I have (and always have had) only 15 minutes to pump. I need 5 of those to set up/clean up, so I only pump for 10 minutes. I was wondering if maybe my supply has increased and that is the reason for the watery milk? My line of thinking is that if I had the time to pump longer, I would be getting more hindmilk. Is this something to be concerned about? I worry that this milk won't fill my son up the same way my older milk did, and I hate to imagine that he would be starving.
