I dont know what that is, my closest guess would be a line of dead pixels but it doesnt really even look like that, it kinda looks like its on your screen and not your actual display, could it be something under it like a liquid? Does your screen still turn on?

I want to say its something leaking onto the display but it looks like somekind of scratch on the screen itself, you could youtube a video on how to disassemble the display and take a hands on look, its not too hard but it voids whatever warrenty you have

I looked some videos but as you said maybe is a liquid it looks like that but never any liquid spilled on my phone as i can remember the line appeared after using a long skype video call the phone was pretty hot maybe that's the reason for the line appeared.
Anyway can i open the display just to check what's going on or i can't do that.

Unfortunately, you cannot just separate the display to clean it.. The glass is stuck to the display with an adhesive.

It almost seems like a fault in the adhesive. I wonder if contacting someone at Samsung or the carrier would help, as it doesn't look like physical abuse or damage.
