Probably both depending on the outcome. Since it is less than a year old it is covered under AppleCare. You have 90 days of phone support and one year of hardware support.

What this guy said!

It is common knowledge that Apple has top notch customer service and honor their product warranties as quickly and painlessly as possible, no matter large or small the town you live. Just call 1-800-MYAPPLE and tell them what's going on with your Mini, everything's gonna be alright.

I have seen LCD screens do many things. But I have never seen them change drastically in a month or two.

Judging screen quality via random youtube videos is not exactly what is call a controlled test.

YouTube updated the app so the left panel your referring to is now transparent not black.

If your fairly new iPad is not working as it was previously, then yeah you'll need to call apple or take it to an apple store. There's really nothing that can be done by you at home to fix a display that is now causing you problems.

Try saving off solid color photos to your camera roll and look at them to see if there is obvious color differences in different sections of the screen.
