    I'd bring it to the service center to see if it's something that can be buffed out or if it needs to be sanded down and painted.

    Looks like a finger print or residue from a sticker applied prior to paint.

    There are several of them on the hood...One of them has some light scratching around it like someone tried to buff it out but screwed it up even worse. I'm slightly amazed i didn't see them during delivery, but it was rather rushed by the delivery specialist. I have a service appointment on Tuesday. Hopefully it will be properly resolved.
