D7000 Dust on sensor?

First time poster, but I hope somebody can help:

I just got my d7000 and noticed that there is a dark spot on the left side on my images. I assumed that it is dust and used the "cleaning" function in the camera but that had no effect. I can even see that same "spot" in Live View, which suggests that it may be more than dust; it doesn't seem like a hot-pixel however. I'm surprised that there would be a noticeable dust spot already since I've barely used the camera and was very careful went attaching the lens.

Should I return the camera to BB or is it likely that it can be cleaned?

The attached image shows the spot pretty clearly. But it shows up on images taken f/8 and higher.

Thank you,
Jason
