Default Strange Red Mark on Video Card

I bought a new video card on 10/23/2015. On 10/26/2015 I notice a strange red mark on the edge of it. Should I be concerned?

I also waited until today if the mark grew bigger. It did not.

If it is an issue then I have the option of exchanging the video card for a new one.

Could be a quality control mark or something. If you're concerned with it, contact the GPU manufacturer and ask about it.

Was the GPU you bought an Open Box item, Refurb, or was it actually new?

Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Samsung Galaxy Note 5
