Can I ever get the water marks off of my screen?

A few days ago, my Nexus 7 wasn't switching on. Taking off the back showed there was water inside it - though I hadn't dropped it in water. Left it to dry and it works again - save two 'water stains' on the screen. Does this mean it's likely to remain functional? And can I remove these water marks?

The tablet had worked perfectly well, until I switched it off and was unable to switch it back on. I removed the back to see if anything was loose, and it was then that I saw liquid inside it. I had briefly carried it in my hand during a rain shower, but that was a few days before - is it likely water could get inside and hang around for a while? I definitely hadn't spilt water on it or dropped it since.
As the tablet seems to be charging a functioning now, how confident can I be that it will continue to work? And will the water stains on the screen - which are a little bit irritating., but not enough that I want to replace it - now a permanent fixture?
