Is your machine still under warranty or extended Apple care? It looks like either a defective LCD or possible GPU defect. What does the screen look like from a screen shot of the desktop or from an external monitor?

If you're wary of doing the repair yourself, by all means have someone who specializes in Mac repair do it for you. It's worth the labor cost.

And yes, the LCD is defective if the screen shot was OK.
