Looks like an air pocket/bubble in the LCD.

You can try a warranty replacement but as these things are subject to bumps and drops I doubt it's covered. Next phone? Try an Otterbox case.

....that warranty will not likely be an option. Looks like screen bleeding which can occur if the screen has been hit hard enough. If you can't live with it, I hope you have insurance on the phone or can take it to a repair shop at your expense.
