Default Screen issue - Horizontal banding, Screen burn in?

Since last week I am seeing horizontal banding (dark/light banding) on the screen, this is very notable on white backgrounds/low brightness.

Not sure if this is a result of screen burn in, any body seen any thing like this? Is this a hardware issue?
