2015 528i stain inside the instrument cluster

Inside the lower left corner of my 2015 528i's (@5200 miles) instrument cluster I see some marks/stains (see the attached pictures). I cannot tell what it is. It looks like as if some moist penetrated in or something happened inside the cluster. On the fuel panel (not the plastic screen or lens) I also see some marks/stains, again inside. I am the second owner of this car. Yet, this is something I haven't seen any used or new car before. Is this covered under bumper to bumper warranty? Any advise how to address this issue with the dealer? Anybody who had and resolved a similar issue? Thanks!

Take it to the dealer and let them look at it. The cluster is easy to remove and you could clean it yourself, but there is a tamper sticker and this would void the warranty on the cluster.

My brother has a similar mark on his F30. Took it to dealer; they blamed it on cleaning fluid and didn't fix it.

Update: BMW dealer service inspected the instrument cluster of my car and decided to replace it with a new one under warranty without a question. It is now crystal clear and shiny. I am super satisfied by the BMW dealer service.
