cluster of discolored pixels on laptop LCD monitor

I have an msi laptop that has been running for 7 years, and suddenly I noticed a cluster of tiny black dots at the bottom center of my laptop display. only some parts of pixels went black, not the whole pixel, but today the area increased and the black dots changed to random noisy color pixels. the funny thing is when I apply some pressure with an ear swab, the color and intensity changes randomly, and stays that way until the next pressure even when I turn off and on the screen!
I also tried jscreenfix for 30 mins with not so much progress.

I want to know if they are dead/stuck pixels or anything else and if there is a way to fix it.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It’s possible the screen or graphics chip may be starting to go after 7 years. I had a Gateway that started having hardware issue at about the 6 year mark. It may be possible to replace the screen but you need to look into the cost. For a bit more you may be able to get a new PC with more current features, OS, hardware and definitely more power.

    This is probably bad pixels or something like this. Have you contacted MSI Customer Care directly? Have you asked them for help? Although this is a seven years old, but MSI may help quickly.
