    Generally self inflicted damage is covered. Screen crack/shattering is a common claim for handset insurance.

    Do you reckon it will be worth mentioning to my parents? I mean, I doesn't effect the camera except for some crazy flare when pointing at a direct light source.

    Usually there is a deductible.
    Generally ~30% of the phones total cost.

    You could probably remove/replace it for much much less.

    EDIT: Have you tried using a cotton swab to wipe it off?
    It could simply be a scuff mark.
