this started a few weeks ago and it dose not bother me too much, but im worried that it will stop working.
It only happens at the lowest brightness and when turning off the screen.
i have a video you guys can check out.

Try this:
Settings > Developer Options (Click more then 7 times on "Build number" in "About phone" to open these options) > Check the option "Disable hardware overlays".

After doing this, try to set lowest brightness.
I hope it will help you.

Could possibly be a hardware issue. Did it come into any physical contact?

i haven't dropped it recently so im not sure about physical damage.
my only thought is that i often you blue wallpapers and as far as to my knowledge blue sub-pixels ware out the fastest on AMOLED displays.
but other than that ive got nothing, really hoping it dose not break as i can afford to repair it

I want to blame the problem on the rom, since only on low brightness did the glitch happens, have you tried backing up your phone and flashing another rom temporarily?
