Maybe you sneezed on it?
If it can't be cleaned off, then it's a dead pixel / hole.

yep, that would be a dead pixel. sometimes you can massage the screen where the dead pixel is and bring it back to life, but this doesn't always work. if it's still under warranty, take it back to apple and insist they replace the screen. it's way too expensive to pay for once it's out of warranty.

Apple will not replace a display because of one dead pixel. Either you have to learn to live with it or you can try these:

LCD / LED screen manufacturers and PC manufacturers expect dead pixels. They wont replace a screen until there are a LOT of dead pixels or a weird cluster of dead pixels.

Good luck.
