Default Monitor whiteness at top

Hi all, I bought a samsung monitor in feb, and recently, I've noticed white at the top of the screen. What I mean is, when the screen at the top is black or dark, I notice a white gradience going up from about 1 inch down the screen to the top. Its in a parabola like shape. (This is a 19 inch monitor fyi) Is this bad? Its still under warranty, should I see if I can return it? Thanks!

You should state if it is an LCD or a CRT.

my only question is, will it get worse? I'm fine with it now, it only bothers me when a dark screen is up. Also, I felt the screen just for jollies, and I noticed that the area where that is showing up, is a lot hotter than the rest of the monitor.
