If it's darker when shooting towards brighter areas (as in a bright sky), becoming more prominent at smaller apertures (higher f/stop numbers) and longer focal lengths, it's probably a spec of dust on the camera's sensor.

As for what to do about it, if it's under warranty, I'd consider sending it to Canon for service.
