Just noticed it this morning...

There's this Line at the Bottom, that looks like a Burn-in. Is this covered?

I tried getting a pic but it doesn't show.

LCDs don't permanently burn in the way phosphor-based displays do. Sometimes LCD pixels do end up with image ghosts that look like the old burn in, but eventually they goes away on their own (and you can encourage it to go away faster by displaying something different on the screen). The tendency to stick seems to go away as the display ages.

If you have a different defect (a permanently dim line or range of pixels), that's a little different. Try to see if it's really part of a menu bar or an independent flaw, the latter could be a warranty thing.
