They probably wont, nintendo doesnt care about people with a stuck pixel, they would only fix it if you have 5 or more i think. Its sucks but thats the way it is. You might be able to exchange it at the store you bought it at though

Nintendo will indeed repair a stuck pixel or dead pixel for a 3DS or XL that is under warranty.

While not officially recognized as a defect, if you email them or call them, they will indeed send you a UPS shipping label.

I developed a blue stuck pixel on my top screen and went through the support steps to have it repaired, but decided against it because I wasn't willing to be without my 3DS for 2-3 weeks.

Please understand that the best way to get the correct answer to your hardware issues is to contact Nintendo Customer Support, and not these boards. Nintendo Customer Support is the best in the industry, and they will do whatever to help you out.
