you have what is known as a stuck pixel. This is a monitor defect and many monitors have them.

Most lcd makers believe that anything less than 7 bad pixels is acceptable, though a few have higher standards. If the pizel is in the center, they are more likely to consider it bad.

A stuck pixel is one that is stuck on a certain color---red, green, blue; a dead pixel is either black, or white.

A stuck pixel can sometimes be brought back to life by rubbing it very, very, VERY gently. A dead pixel is less likely to be coaxed back to life
