Dead pixel on ipod touch 5G?

Today, I discovered a small black dot on my ipod touch. May I know is there any way to confirm that black dot is a dead pixel or just dust? Anyway, is that possible for a dust to enter the screen?

take it to the genius bar. they can determine exactly what it is/replace your iPod with a new one.

Low and behold.... You have to go to the apple store!!

Oh and it's possible but very unlikely since the screen is fused to the glass

Thank you for the concern

Yesterday I visited the retail store and the guy said I can always get warranty for my product. But, since I have already purchased apple care warranty, he suggested it is always wiser to get the warranty when the warranty almost ends (which mean I can get a new one next year). Because the dot there is not a big deal that needs to be replaced immediately.

Thanks all again
