Well before venturing ideas, I'd like to get a good idea of what you are seeing. I'm sure that it is glaringly obvious to you since you know it's there now.. but your photos are not close ups or high res.. and you didn't circle the area or describe it in detail. Can you point it out or describe it better?
It might be exactly as the poster above suggests or I can think of three or four other possible causes depending on what the artifact looks like.
