This is expected.  The Guix repository contains a package definition for
“guix”, which is a particular version, which necessarily must be older
than the version of Guix you’ve pulled.

The “guix” package can be used as a library by other packages, and it is
updated occasionally.

If you really do need to build the current version of Guix with Guix
then do

    guix build -e '((@ (gnu packages package-management) current-guix))'

There are only few valid use cases that require one to build the latest
version of Guix that are not served better by using “guix pull”.
