MacBook Pro Retina leaves black residue/dust on the screen?

Hey fellow mac users

I have had my Macbook pro retina since it got released and dont know why but its started to leave black Residue/dust on the screen. It's just above where the fans are. you can also see it in the space where the "cooled" air comes out from the fans at the back of the computer.

Do any of you experience the same issues?

I'm getting tried of cleaning the screen for black residue!

Do you live in a coal mine? In which case it would be normal.

That doesn't seem like a very good thing at all!

I'd take it to an Apple store right away. Sounds hazardous ! Take it back right away please, don't even bother with it right now in case it is a really bad thing.. Be safe !
