Looks like a bad backlight.

Too bad the model number isn't in the post as I could see if there was a service manual or YouTube about this area.

Answer
Could be backlight

Can't say with a single photo, but it could be a backlight issue or maybe IPS glow. One way to differentiate the two is that the IPS glow vanishes depending on the angle of the monitor. Adjusting the angle and brightness might help in this case. You can test for yourself if it is backlight bleeding (source, which basically will have you open a pitch black video or photo and see if the spots are still there). This could also be remedied by changing your brightness settings or dismantling, which you should do at your own risk.
