Try those? If they don't work, just go to the Apple store. The 'Genius' should replace it for you and give you a new (not refurbished) phone. I'd avoid AppleCare, only because I know they'd end up telling me the same thing.
P.S. Open those links on you phone.
What black background are you using? It might just be that wallpaper or image has 2 white dots on it. I'm not sure if a stuck pixel can be white. Maybe.
Well I tried it out last night, today at work, and now. Still nothing. Damn red pixel won't change to anything else.
Well I must be extra lucky then because I had a stuck white pixel! I returned it and they had no problem swapping out a new one... I kinda wish I would've held on to it until I got a few major scratches though. The pixel didn't bother me and it would have been a guaranteed replacement.You would have to have all 3 (RGB) pixels in the same cluster to be stuck on to produce white (this would be extremely rare).
There is some super-fast rainbow pattern thing you can run on it for 30 minutes in an attempt to "unstick" the pixel. Do a search for iPhone pixel repair or something like that. You might as well try it before returning it. Just don't watch it too long or you might have a seizure

Thanks for the links. I'll try it out. I hope it works. I would hate to have to replace the phone especially with my screen shield, side skins, and back skin on. lol.
I have the same exact problem! It's really obnoxious, in going to bring my phone in tomorrow for an exchange
