My daughter sent me a picture of her screen tonight. She is away at school so I get the honor of trying to get this identified (yay me). She said it showed up recently and thought she read somewhere it could be a blown pixel. I've never seen this before so I thought I would ask here if anyone knows what is going on! I told her to make an appointment with Apple, anyway, just in case. It is a 2023 (I think?) Macbook Air. She just bought it in August.

Any thoughts? Thanks in advance, as always! :) (((the smudge is just below and to the right of the cursor...I think the one in the opposite corner is a reflection of something in her room)))
