Hey alotta ford dealers put on a rain-x type film either before delivery of your vehicle, or at your first oil change...I have had rain-x make it look like scratches after scraping a frost off...your plastic scraper physically cannot scratch the harder glass, unless there is a foreign object enbedded in your scraper...if you run your fingernail over the marks, do you feel the "scratch"? If so, its a scratch, if not, clean your windsheild thoughroughly and it should be clear again...
