It is running in a lean condition. Continued operation like that can cause piston and cylinder failure.
I'd take it in for repair estimate ($10) at the local chainsaw seller/mechanic. Explain the problem you are having, Probably a leaking fuel line. I'd expect a repair and tune up about $40-60. Your saw will perform better and your arm will thank you. If tuned ask what fuel/oil ratio they used (should be 50:1) and affix a label to your fuel tank. HTH

Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Inspect the fuel lines for decay or other damage. If no help, remove the carburetor, disassemble and clean the interior with spray carburetor cleaner. Check the condition of the diaphragm in the lower chamber--it should be flexible with no holes or cracks. Also check the small needle valve that the diaphragm controls. Check the crankcase impulse passage behind the carburetor for gasket failure or other damage. This passage pulse-pumps additional fuel into the carburetor as it runs. Hope this helps!
