Paint blemish on a 13?

On my hood right next to the hood insert on the passenger side I found a what looks to be a bubble in the paint, maybe a piece of dirt or even a drip of paint that has dried. Either way it is in a perfection... I now I will be the only person to ever notice this only because I will be the only one to ever handle the paint on my car so my question is should I even bother with having this issue addressed or should I just leave it alone? Measurements of the imperfection is 1/8 X 1/8.. I will break out the canon here in a few and see if I can get some pics of it

2013 ford mustang gt, black, bought 16th of August. Only mod so far is tinted windows.

Take it back to dealer to try and buff out if excess paint. If It is a bubble you'll want them to fix but the paint at a shop will not be the same quality of paint job at plant. But end result is if chips you won't be happy so have the dealer take car of it.

I have the same thing on my front drivers side bumper. The dealer said they would have to repaint the bumper. The bubble/grain of sand is not noticeable but i did have the dealer note it in the "system" just in case it ends up flaking. I don't think some chimp I'm the back is gonna paint it as good as factory, so I'm leaving it alone.
