    seems like something is leaking, you ever spill anything on it? could be dead pixels too, take it to bestbuy and ask em to see what it is

    I bought it second hand and checked and saw that the warranty was still good. There are more then 3 lines like this. Can i take it to the apple store to be replaced?

    The lines are most likely scratches on the screen, there's nothing you can really do.

    There's nothing you can really do, the warranty doesn't cover scratches.
