There are no red lines in this screenshot, so it may be a hardware problem with either the graphics card or the monitor.

Looks like the backplane on the monitor is dieing. (broken connections T_T)
Try gently pressing the bezel above the lines and see if it gets worse or goes away to confirm this.

Same thing happened to my mac except it was an inch thick white vertical line. After some info I gathered online and sweet talk with one of the reps, I avoided paying $800 on a mac screen 2 years after warranty

If out of warranty, than it wouldn't hurt opening the casing and checking for loose ribbon cables.
