[Q] Dark spots on camera lens. Is it dust or dead pixels?

There is a fairly noticeable dark spot in the middle of my camera view that also appears in the pictures themselves.

When I zoom in/out the dark spot travels and gets bigger when zooming in.

What does this mean? Is it dust inside the lens or something in the image sensor itself?

Attached are a couple images showing the issue.

Is this a solvable issue or do I need to return it? (I got the phone in July 2013)

Thanks!
