Apple hardware test form recovery boot, hold command R on reboot
New MacBooks can access HardWareTest by rebooting holding the D key, no disk required.
The key combination varies between systems, but should be one of the following on your Mac:
- Option + D (Early 2011 and newer; Mountain Lion tested)
- Command + D

Could be, likely because the dust hasn't been cleaned out of the machine and the vents are clogged causing the overheating.
Take it into a Apple Store and have them run a check, unfortuntly I don't think they will open it up there to clean the fans.

Quick way to tell if the problem is with the gpu (graphics card) or the display panel itself - connect an external display to your MBP.
If the problem also occurs on the external display, the gpu is probably at fault.
If the external display is fine but your MBP display gets fuzzy, the MBPdisplay panel is probably at fault.
How old is your MBP (what model), and is it still under warranty or AppleCare?
