Is this too much backlight bleed?

2016-10-02, 7:06 AM



I've had my laptop for just a couple of weeks and have noticed that there is a yellowish corner of the screen. It is only apparent with a black screen. I have a theory that there is extra pressure in the right corner because that's where the thinkpad logo and red light are on the backside. 


Anyway, it doesn't bother me; I'm just worried that it might get worse progessively. 


I don't really want to have to send it back to China and wait for repairs. But want to go ahead fix it while under warranty if there is a possibility that it will get worse. 


Is this an acceptable amount of bleeding?


(note: the only bleed is in the top right corner. It's definitely bleed because it goes away when I bend the screen ever so slightly. Everything else is glare. )
