Default stuck pixel!

I have a red stuck pixel, right in the middle of my BRAND NEW 1080p monitor. Fricken annoying. Anyhow, what are some ways to get rid of it? It's really obnoxious looking, and I can't seem to get it to go away...

I've tried both

I wish it would just die or something. Being red is annoying, I wouldn't mind black as much.
