Brand new GoPro 2 with dirty lens Can't Post

I got a new gopro in the mail today and on the lens there was a tiny spot of moisture or dirt. Has anyone else had this problem? Do you think it is condensation? Thanks.

Assuming it's the outside of the lens, might be some oil from the packaging, might be something similar. Can it be wiped off with a microfiber cloth?

Did the package come properly sealed? (Round adhesive (seal) on each side)?

I had a speck of something on mine but it wasn't on the lens. I had to take it apart and remove the lens (which I was going to do anyway to put on my Ragecams lens). I removed the speck of whatever it was with a Q-tip from the plate behind the lens and it was fine after that.
