X-5 purple spot

I got a new Pentax X-5 for Christmas, and just noticed a small spot, bright purple in certain light, which shows up in the same place on each photo. It's near the lower left quarter. It's there when I print the photos so it's not something to do with the screen. Is there something I can do to get rid of it?

Hmm, it could be one of many things. You should post a sample photo (may require you to create an account) so that we can take a look!
