There are cuts on the metal fret things under the high e and b strings. This means I can't bend but other than that I can play my guitar perfectly fine. I think they appeared when my guitar fell forward onto the ground though I'm not entirely sure. And I never clean my guitar strings (I will start now) so I've noticed there is build up under the strings, could this have caused the cuts?It was a pretty cheap guitar, about $200 aud on sale which would probably work out to be $150 usd or something.

Should I bother repairing this while it's under warranty, or should I might as well get a new guitar.

There's your answer, the manufacturer more than likely used a less then quality fret wire and the constant pressure against the fret wire and the friction from bends most likely caused your problem.
