Default Strange Problem with my Screen

This is a physical problem, the screen works fine and has no distortion as far as what it looks like when its on. But I noticed this weekend that when it was off I noticed a like triangular section in the middle of the screen, where it has a rainbow-ish discoloration pattern and small dots in the middle of the screen, about 1/4 of a inch inward all the way around the display part of the screen. The dots are in a perfect grid-like format and the rainbow color distortion almost looks like an oil slick.

I have had the factory screen protector on it since day one, I peeled it back today only to find its on the screen itself, I tried to wipe it off and nothing. I always carry the phone in a belt clip and never in my pocket, etc. So I don't know how it could have gotten damaged or how damage could cause such a curios perfect pattern of strangeness on the screen.

Anyone else ever seen this happen?

Oh wow/crap its times like this when I guess I'm glad I'm not a regular consumer but have this through work, so I'm sure they will replace it, if not they will buy me another. Should I even get another or is there something like this but better? I'm with ATT.
