I am not too sure what you are asking here as there appears to be 2 different types of marks on the lens. There is the blue type smear which is not a scratch. I'd just try cleaning the lens again for this.

There is also a thin white line which appears like either a scratch or a reflection of a line in the lens itself. This si not a smear and could be a scratch.

I wouldn't worry too much if it doesn't show up in pictures. Or you can use it as an excuse to buy another lens. Replacing the lens on ebay would be quite cheap anyway.
