    Unfortunately, I think you have a dead integrated graphics. Something is wrong with it and I would probably take it in to apple to have them look at it.

    Could be your motherboard. I would take it into apple or give them a call and request a quote.

    English might not be the OP's first language.

    If it's a 13" from a recent year, then it will have integrated graphics, meaning that if it was that causing the problem it would be CPU related and you would be experiencing a lot more issues than just graphics-related ones.

    Personally, given the above, my money is on the display cable or the display.

    I think it could be a software glitch. The password input field and other stuff on the pixelated left hand side are totally normal. It's just the background/wallpaper that has a glitch.

    If it were the graphics card, those would also have been affected.

    So I would do a clean install of OS X to see if that would help.
