    If you just opened it, then it's from the mock display sticker in its packaging. That will go away shortly.

    If you're extremely careful, you can lightly swab the surface of the screen with an alcohol swab to reduce the amount of residual adhesive on the screen, but be sure to only put on enough alcohol so it will evaporate instantly.

    Technically no, because the screen assembly in the new iPod touch is literally airtight. If it bothers you though, by all means, return it now.

    Then you should be good to go... I just noticed my 2nd generation touch has a massive light leak on the right side. Never noticed it cause the thing spent its whole life in a case.
