Small horizontal black line spreading on monitor


Novice Member
Hello all.
I've owned this HP ProBook laptop for about 2 years and in the past couple of weeks a very small black horizontal line randomly appeared on the left of my screen, right in the middle. I did not impact the laptop or screen in anyway and I doubt anyone else has, so I have no idea how it formed. At first I figured it was just a dead pixel and I didn't pay much attention to it, but recently I've noticed that with each passing day it has been slowly spreading to the right and a little vertically as well, and I don't think dead or stuck pixels actually spread. Is there any fix here or does this warrant a screen replacement? Thank you in advance for any assistance.

Here is a photo for visual reference
