S5 green/yellow-ish flickering screen at low brightness

Hi there! I’ve been experiencing some issues with my Samsung S5 screen recently. Basically, when I turn brightness down very low, around 7/8ths of the screen shows this greenish flicker. I can still see what’s on the screen but it just has a rapid green flicker superimposed. It’s not an issue when I have normal brightness set. Furthermore, when I press the lock button to lock the phone, the screen also flickers green before it goes black. Hopefully this is enough detail to help identify the issue. P.S. I am yet to update to Marshmallow due to space constraints on the phone. And the phone is relatively well looked after – barely dropped etc since I got it 2 years ago.
I just wanna know if i ignore this problem and use it at normal brightness, will the problem progress??

Looks like this is common wear and tear thing with the displays. Some users see yellow tint, some greenish after a long usage of the phone.
