I recently found some strange minute spots on some of my pictures. Could this be oil on the sensor? Here is and example in the left bottom quarter of the picture towards the middle.

If so, what would your advice be (taking Nikon's bad customer service record into account) - to remove them manually and wait to see if they improve, or to send the camera in for repair?
