I'm just wondering if there's any good way to go about cleaning my LCD monitor screen. It has somehow gotten some spots on it and i'd like to try getting them off if possible. I tried gently going at them with my fingernail, but it didn't help.. plus I was paranoid of ruining the screen further.

Try rubbing Alchohol. Thats how they clean them before they are shipped.

I contacted Samsumg and asked them how to clean my LCD monitor. They said that I should use mild dish detergent diluted with water and then dry. However, it left some streaks when I dried it. Thus I founf this process works best:
Use the detergent with water and dry. Then, use just plain water on a paper towel to get rid of the streaks. It dries in a second if the towel is just damp.

Thanks guys. I'll have to give it a shot. Also, about the spots I have. Has anybody else had this happen? Is it somewhat normal? (The monitor is a little over a month old) And is there anything I can do to prevent them?

The spots are normal. They are probably just smudges that may develop for whatever reason - dust is a killer. They may stop on the screen and then when it moves, it may leave a mark. With so much dust, I happens quickly. The cleaning process should take care of it.
