I am travelling to India next month, and to do so I ordered a new passport. In the short time I've had it, I've somehow managed to get 4 blobs of oil stain (explained as oil by the fact that the paper has become slightly more transparent in the way that paper exposed to oil does). I am very concerned that this is damage sufficient to result in my being rejected entry. I have time to get a new passport entirely if needs be, although obviously I don't want to. I have attached some images below showing the four blobs on the other side of the bio-data page, as well as some photos of the bio-data (cropped for privacy reasons) showing that they are visible on the all-important bio-data page itself.
Simply put: based on the images shown below, should I get a replacement passport before I travel to India in 4 weeks time? Thanks for your help.

The other blob can be seen on the passport photo itself, albeit slightly to the side of my portrait.
