does it bother you enough to worry about it?

Put a sticker over it.
Try different cleaners

Stripe to frame, remove paint and repaint whole bike.

or not care and ride.

Well I would prefer it not to be there I mean I know it is a bike and going to be messed up anyway but it's my first bike I bought new, I put a sticker over the one for now and have tried a couple cleaners but I don't think I'd go so far as to strip and paint

The stain has actually penetrated the clear, so there's no cleaning it off. You can try some fine steel wool, 1000-1500 grit sand paper or maybe a white scotch pad (from your auto paint store) and basically sand down below the stain. If it's not too deep, you can then use some polishing compound to bring it back to a gloss. Not easy, but it should work.

I think it might actually be like a frame sticker maybe because the rest of the bike isn't smooth it's more flat coloured thanks for the help though guys

I'm not sure if it would have but I've had great results using brake cleaner to remove stains etc. Keep in mind that I use bicycle specific brake cleaner. Automotive brake cleaner could work but I believe it can damage paint etc as it's more potent. I may be wrong about this but since I haven't tried it I can't recomend it.
