Found this mark on my D600's sensor. How do you think it got there?

I decided to blow some dust off of the sensor when I noticed dust spots in my images, and to my shock, I discovered this when I looked at the sensor. I have never exposed the sensor or touched it with anything before.

I've contacted Nikon about it and sent them a picture. I'm awaiting their reply. I'm still within the return period at Amazon (until October 23), so I'm not sure what I should do. If I have it sent back to Amazon, it won't cost me a penny but if I send it to Nikon, I would have to pay to ship it, and who knows if they'll fix it. They might tell me that I made it dirty and charge me for a cleaning or even worse, the AA filter might need to be replaced.

I love this camera, and I've noticed no effect from the mark on my images (but maybe if I look for it, I will find it now). I really hope it didn't come from something inside the camera hitting it (like an engineering flaw).
