Opening the aperture wider should help hide the spot.
Though this is a rubbish solution for macro photography where you most want small apertures.
Have you taken the lens off and looked at it so see if the lens needs cleaning on the back end?

I thought buying the camera and clicking shutter release button was the only thing i had to do.I guess not.This is my first Dslr so i have a feeling i have a whole lot to learn. Hopefully i can learn more without destroying my camera ... thanks everyone for their suggestions.......... everyday is a new thing to learn ... i bought a cleaning pen..... i used a normal brush it kinda made it slightly messy.. I am gonna use that when i get it...........
I am pretty happy with this blog and i am glad i joined it.Thanks everyone for their suggestions....

That sometimes happens with a brush - if you waft it around with abandon you sometimes stir up more dust that is in the camera body.
By the way, do not use a compressed air canister. Firstly, it will disturb all sorts of dust and secondly as the air expands rapidly it cools and can cause condensation on the sensor. This can then mix with some dust which then gets really sticky.
Is the camera brand new out the box?
I use a green clean which vacuum cleans and has wet wipes (which I prefer not to use) if the worst comes to the worst. The green clean has a compressed air canister, but it works by creating negative pressure which lifts dust off (well, that's what I think it does from the diagrams!) You will always get these, and the smaller the aperture, the worse they look (try pinhole if you want to see the worst!)
