dark smudge on all photos

Hello. I'm new to the forums and sort of new to photography. I bought my first DSLR last night and I'm really pleased so far.

However I am getting a dark smudge on all of my pictures. It's in the top right corner of the picture I have here. After noticing it I took a picture of the white wall to see it clearer. It takes on whatever color is behind it but darkens it.

Is this just dust on the sensor? Or perhaps something worse?

Thanks for any help you can provide. I hope to return the favor to someone else after I get up to speed with my new hobby.
