It's a hot pixel. Be glad you only have the one. If you shoot raw, and use Adobe Camera Raw to process your raw images, it will automagically remove them.

There are looooooooooooooooong discussion threads about hot pixels and how many are too many and what to do and so on. They can be annoying, but they're a fact of life with digital photography. They're easy enough to clone out if they're bothersome.

I'd say your camera is fine. I also don't think I'll be the last to weigh in on this subject.

Had the same thing happening with me and I thought it was a problem too, especially in night shots (there were lots of those pesky little pixels). But I also found out it was a regular phenomenon with dSLRs. I too switched to RAW as mentioned above and now Camera Raw takes care of all my hot pixel problems. I've never even had to manually remove any of the pixels since then.

Keep shooting...

Thanks guys.. i'm a little less scared now

i'll try the RAW method, and in the meanwhile i find a free photoshop plugin to remove the spots directly from jpegs i already have, i'll post a small tutorial on the faqs forum.
