Scratched Le Creuset..... Is it ruined?

Hi All
I'm new to the boards. Just found this site by researching my problem. You all seem like my kind of people.
I found a 5.5 Qt LC french oven at Marshalls for only $100. I looked it over real well before buying it and did not see any defects in the store. Well I guess I had deal goggles on because I didn't see a very small C shaped scratch on the inside part of the lid. I looked at LC's FAQ and it says, Although unattractive, chipping does not impair the performance of the product or make it unsafe to use.

My question is should I return it? (I figure thats why it was only $100. But It was not marked as such)
IF I keep it, will the scratch get worse?

Thanks in advance!
