So when the screen was black, there'd be 3 faint white oval shaped ..blotches? Behind the screen? Not really blotches.. just like I was able to see the light behind the screen. Is this normal?

Also there's like a faint mist on the screen too. If it were an option you could alter, I'd say it'd be at a theoretical 2% out of 100%. Is that normal? I read it may be a reflection preventer?

If it is an ips display it is very common to have backlight bleed. Quality control on monitors is notoriously terrible. Run a backlight bleed checker from the net. If it shows light above your tolerance swap for another monitor. And play the good monitor lottery

Some Tn monitors can have it too but are generally much better with regards to backlight bleed or clouding.

I think most of the time if there's somewhere that you can see light behind the screen it's usually at the corners. Light bleed anywhere else would be really bad.

In that article they call it "clouding".

Yes, you caught him. TC is telling us about how he lost control and now he has "white blotches" (wink wink) on his monitor.

Hey TC, just sit farther back from the monitor next time, Geez! joke
