Less Than 2wks Old And Scratched. What can I do?

Received my car a few weeks back and a buddy of mine dropped his baseball bag while removing it from my trunk. I originally thought it was just some dirt, but after cleaning it is a much more noticeable scratch. Is there something I can do that would make it dissappear? Or do I need to repaint the entire bumper?

Thanks for any insight!

If you have a drill and want to try to fix yourself, this has worked for me:

3M 39071 Scratch Removal System

I would only use the "fine" polishing pad and see how much it corrects.

There are many light abrasive scratch removers at any auto store. Looks kind of severe, but try that first. Then have a pro touch up if that doesn't work.
