Exclamation Burnt out pixels

I'm not sure if it is burnt out pixels that im having a problem with, but in the middle of my 4g 20gb ipod screen there's a small darkened circle-like area that doesn't seem to go away, and when the backlight is on and i select anything over it, it is quite noticeable, and it looks like something burned out in the screen. My ipod is less than a week old, so should i/could i take it back to where i purchased it (bestbuy) and exchange it for a new one with no extra costs?

Or if im wrong, what could this spot be?

Take it back.......... what you described is a manufacturing defect (which should be covererd under Best Buy return and Apple Warranty).
There should be no small darkened circle-like area on your iPod screen.

The unfortunate side-effects of mass production in a far east factory. After owning several different Macs over the years, IMHO Apple has always had quality control problems with what leaves the factory shipping dock.
