Impossible to say whether it's a fault or damage. Be aware that screen damage is often not covered by warranty. I would contact the supplier immediately, as the cost of a repair is often close to a new laptop.

Sounds like the panel has gone, hook it up to the tv if you have tv output. As it is under warranty send it back.

but have you tried a different background to see if the problem you describe is reproduced, can you physically feel the "scratches"?
