That's not going to fix itself, if you're still under warranty, get it fixed by apple.

I don't know the technical terms, but LCD screens bend crystals with electricity, and from the looks of it, the thingy that zaps the crystals in that area is broken.

I could be completely wrong though

You simply have a bad trace to the LCD column. What does that mean? It means you have to have the screen completely replaced.

I had a white line through my screen ALL I HAD TO DO WAS CLEAN MY SCREEN! Seriously, and then, it just went away when I booted it up.
