On the screen of the paperwhite it looks like a couple of scratches that shine a fluorescent glow. Hard to read and distracting. How can I correct the problem.
that sounds like screen damage and there's nothing you can do to fix it - if your paperwhite is still under warranty talk to Customer Service (this is not it)

actually do that even if it's not still under warranty as you might get a discount on a new one
