    YES, most definitely. It's what you're gonna see and stare at.

    Wonder if it's even repairable or will they just replace it?

    They may try to massage the spot with their finger at the store, depending on who helps you, in an attempt to fix it (sometimes it works, but that's a lot that you have, so that trick probably won't have much success.) Otherwise, it will just be replaced once they have determined no physical damage or misuse has been done that could cause the issue.

    I just hope they dont try to accuse me of damaging it and that's why it's like that.

    Big time defective panel. Take it back and demand an exchange.

    ***UPDATE***

    So i took to the Apple store yesterday, and they actually had a display replacement in stock (entire lid of the computer) and said it should be ready for pick up today.

    Nice, though I didn't know they did that sort of thing in the store.
