Default Do I have a dead or dying pixel on my M8?

Hey guys, so the other day I noticed a TINY flashing(what I think is a) pixel. It's only visible when I'm on for example the reddit app with the dark theme. It flashes in the middle left side when scrolling up and down. Otherwise, in pixel tests, I can't see it.

What do I have here? Is it dead or on the way? Yes it shows in other apps too, but only in dark themes because it's a small white dot.

I have one that shows when the camera goes from preview back to camera mode. Doesn't show up in tests either. I'd like to know as well. Also, do you think a dead pixel is covered by the 6 month screen replacement?

I haven't noticed this myself so there must be some sort of hardware issue. Isn't the M8 covered for screen problems for 6 months? I'd consider this a screen problem/defect and ask for a replacement if it bothered me.
