So last night I was playing Portal 2 in a rather dark room, and the combination of the dark colors in my screen with the darkness of the room allowed me to see quite a few "dead spots" in the backlight of my screen. I've attached an Illustrator recreation of what the spots look like.

These spots don't seem to react to pressure on the screen at all, which would lead me to believe they've been there since I bought the thing, and weren't caused by pressure (just shooting in the dark though). They really aren't all that noticeable, and again it took me til this point to even see a problem. I can't even see them in daylight conditions. Regardless, the fact that I dumped over a grand on this computer and it's still under warranty makes me want to have this fixed.
So two questions stem from this:
1) Is this a common issue with the unibody MBPs? Is it a known issue with this model year or a certain make?
2) Will this issue be recognized and covered by Apple under the standard one year manufacturer warranty?
Thanks in advance for any help!
