You can try disconnecting it from, and then reconnecting to the pc. Often fixes colour problems. Switch off first.

Have you moved the monitor or put any electrical kit near the monitor recently? This can generate a magnetic field and interfere with colour purity.

Monitors should degauss themselves at switch-on and you may find there is a degauss option in the OSD menu. If you select the degauss option and you don't get a buzzing sound or screen shimmer then your degauss coil is nadged (or the fuse).
