looks like sth you can clean off easily. have you checked the inside portion of glass on ur lens? if so then try attaching a different lens if u have 1 and see the result.

btw wat cam r u using? if its a nikon, you could trigger the mirror lock-up and check the sensor for dirt. but be careful to do so in a cleaner room

Looks quite big. Try to use an even smaller aperture, like f18 - f22 and shoot at a patch of bright clear blue sky. The dust particle should have a clearer outline. Else maybe its fungus?

If it is dust, you can prevent it from appearing by using bigger appertures (f2.8 - f8), and not necessary to send it in for cleaning, unless you always use small apertures and your camera is still under warranty.

If its fungus, its better to have it sent for cleaning as it would get worse over time. This may not be covered by warranty.

Check the prices for both services, and decide for yourself if it is worth your time and money to have it repaired. :)
