Probably best to talk to your supplier before doing anything and see if they will replace it , as it was damaged on delivery.
To me it also looks like an LED that was physically bent after the Pi was assembled. As statistics are usually kept on the number of items damaged in transit, it would be reasonable to report the problem by asking for a replacement. This allows the supplier to evaluate their shipping methods to know whether any changes are needed.
Another approach is to save the planet by using broken stuff rather than causing so much waste by replacing it. I've taken that approach with my automobile and it seems to be working: everybody is still alive and breathing. In the long run it may turn out to be even more carbon neutral than Elton John's airplane.
