Blue pixel

Spectre x360 (2018)
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
Hi there,
 
i just want to ask if i getting this right. I just bought my brand new HP Spectre and after first booting i got viewable blue shining pixel on black screen, after reading LCD Panel policy, i better have 2 faulty pixel for my warranty.
 
So my question is: Is there anything I can do about this? Or I just have to live with faulty display on my brand new notebook? If there so... last time with HP and i was quit satisfied with envy before spectre.. I hope that there is something like "death/damaged on arrivel" thing about premium notebooks..
 
Thanks.

btw2: i tried some 3rd software to "unstuck" pixel, but nothing works for me.

Yes, problem persists in BIOS too, i got all the updates, all the reinstalls, i even tried recovery USB flash disc reinstall. I know the LCD replacement criterie, but its really **** me off. Even when it happened on your "premium" one laptops.
