Backlight bleed or IPS glow / keep or exchange?

Bought an Acer Nitro 5 recently and noticed a small backlight bleed or IPS glow on the bottom left of the screen(ips). I don't know much about backlight bleed or IPS glow to know what is acceptable and what is not.

So my question is should I send this laptop back for an exchange and hope that I get a better one or will I be risking getting something worse? (not sure how common this problem is).

Any help would be greatly appreciated and thank you for your help in advance.

    This problem is very common and it is hard to get an IPS with no light bleed. The screen on your laptop has very little light bleed and it is more likely to get something worse than recieving something better. 
    If your question is about a device you own or want information on, always post the following characterisitcs of the device:
    -Model number
    -Part number(not required, but helpful)
    -CPU
    -GPU
    -Operating system

    I am not an Acer employee!
