If you can always solve the problem by pressing in a specific location, it is likely either your lcd panel or possibly the ribbon cable that runs from the mainboard to your lcd panel.
If you do the work yourself: REMOVE ALL POWER SOURCES before doing the work, this includes the battery and the power adapter. I have seen multiple cases of burned out led drivers (mainboard) from disconnecting the ribbon cable from the lcd while power was connected. It is easy to short circuit those connectors.

Is your laptop still under warranty? it has been my experience that when you see lines running vertically on the monitor screen.that the screen is about to fail. Unless you have special tools required for laptops I would have it repaired by a professional. I have seen many people ruin their laptop by trying to fix it themselves
How old is the laptop?

The screens and cables are generally sold separately. What you can do to determine if it is the cable or the lcd panel is take the computer apart so you have access to the cable and the lcd panel, extremely carefully manipulate the cable without touching the screen and see if this changes the display at all. If only touching/moving the cable in a specific spot changes the display or causes the issue, it most likely is the cable. If moving the cable around does nothing at all, but putting pressure on the lcd panel does, then likely you have a bad panel. Don't forget to remove all power sources before actually disconnecting the cable.
If it is under warranty, a free service is the better route.
