Title:

Pink lines in white space, green lines in black space?

Text:

So starting today I have pink vertical lines appearing in white spaces, and green vertical lines appearing in black spaces on my macbook pro. An example of this can be seen [http://imgur.com/mvRmQ|here]

now at first I assumed that it was the video card however when I tested it with an external display I got the following [http://imgur.com/sa6Rg|results]

Since the output is fine I have determined that the problem is not with the videocard.
 
Something else I have noticed is that if I press on the bottom of the case in certain spots the problem goes away.
 
So what are some suggestions to fix this? Is my best bet to just go to the local apple store and get them to fix it?
