How do I remove this stain--or what do I do if I can't?

I picked up my laundry from the laundromat yesterday--I did wash-and-fold this time because I didn't feel like dealing with the laundromat on a holiday weekend--and my favorite purple shirt has a bunch of dark splotches on the front. It looks like it just got water dripped on it or something, except that the spots don't dry, and they also don't go away with mere water. What should I do?

It's an ordinary cotton 3/4 sleeve t-shirt. The clothes were washed with free-and-clear detergent and fabric softener, but I don't know what brand the place uses. Quite sure there wasn't anything spilled on the shirt when it went into the laundry, and I don't know how I could have gotten anything on it between here and the laundromat. The other shirts look to be okay, although I didn't want to unfold absolutely everything to find out. I'm intending to call them, but I don't honestly know what I can ask for--what's standard procedure if the cleaner damages an item, if this won't come clean again? Am I just out a shirt?
