    I noticed a black pixel on my laptop's screen quite by accident. What is that supposed to mean - is it stuck or dead? I tested the pixels with UDPixel and came out another six that are inconspicuous, apparently are not so damaged.

    Usualy a dead pixel is a BRIGHT pixel, not black. It might be always white, or some of one of primary RGB colors.
    Guess dust or little insect nside panel and protection

    The laptop is a few months old. It's one of the newest and most expensive models of Toshiba.

    if you don't notice it when you're more than a foot away from the screen, then perhaps leave it alone? But if it develops further, then consider getting it repaired or replaced - warranty must still be working, right?

    This is the pixel. It's not entirely affected. It is visible when I'm close to the laptop screen. I can't see it from a distance.
    About the warranty - the Bulgarian repairers have a requirement for a certain number of dead/stuck pixels, which are covered by the warranty.
