Wierd Blue area on Monitor

Hi, So I got a Gigabyte g27f display yesterday and just noticed that there is an area bout the size of a nickel that looks kinda blue when a dark or black image is displayed. When every other color is displayed it works just fine so at least I suspect it's not a dead pixel. Does anybody knows if this is fixable? Got this as a replacement for a RMA'ed Asus VG279Q1A and the rma process from this store takes about 3 weeks to a month so I would rather try to fix it.If not I would apreciate if someone can help me identify how is this issue called to make a better warraty claim. Happens regarless of which computer or console it is connected to and regarless of which input cable is used.

It's stuck blue subpixels. In that black area, everything should be off, which is why it's noticeable. In other situations it's going to be blended with the light from the other subpixels and not be as noticeable. There's various "remedies" for fixing stuck pixels/subpixels, but YMMV. Since this is a new display, I'd just return it.
