There is a white spot on my monitor that is very bright and visible when there's a white background but only slightly visible with grey/black backgrounds.

Any idea what it could be?

It could be a stuck or dead pixel. Is it a new monitor? Also post a picture if possible.

If it was black - dead pixel.
Are the surrounding pixels slightly discolored? Check up close. If you see a couple of random colours (no matter how tiny) when the screen is completely white, you've earned yourself a half-dead pixel. Same on my phone.

It's not a dead pixel it's a bright little spot. The colors still work normally but on a white background the spot appears especially bright and on a black background it's a little subtle bright dot. (On a black background it appears like a greyish color.) It's not a single pixel, it looks like about 3 pixels and it sort of fades, it's not a sharp 3 pixel block that immediately stops it fades out over the course of about 3 pixels.

It kind of looks like the backlight is super bright in that area for some reason.

Well I take good care of my monitor and I don't go bumping it let alone pushing my finger into it, but after some googling I found that it could be a small contaminent such as a dust particle stuck between the screen and the LCD, thoughts?
