in my haste to change a rear flat i tightened the skewer, then pushed it closed upon the frame, not the space where i shld have (my Felt frame was aluminum there) so being a full carbon frame (i think) i inadvertently left a little dent from pushing the skewer down in the wrong place. im very irrate for being so stupid, its a brand new, and beautiful frame, but have i stuffed it? any advice welcome - i feel terrible. will vist store of purchase sat, but in the meantime...

Take it to your lbs. A picture is usually not going to be a reliable source unless there is obvious catastrophic failure.

Does the rear wheel fit in the drops correctly now?

looking at those marks, and my understanding that the sl3 dropouts are aluminum, I think you are fine.

similar marks on this pro bike:

yep SL3 uses hollowbox alu dropouts, it's fine-- I have a lot of marks near at the rear dropouts.

i feel much better thanks - kudos for posting that pic too - good on you for making the effort - identical markings. ive had the frame a week, and apart for the annoying nosiy BB bearings from riding through unexpected flooding, the frame is amazing, albeit a bit hairy in big cross-winds, its so light - gotta get used to it. i can't believe how it keeps its form on descent, and climbing, well, if your head's in a good place, you'll go forever.
