Legally the extended warranty work as insurance against damage. Look for the company that sold you and get informed of the proceedings. Note that some dead pixels are considered "normal" and not a defect. Depending on how it is visible, or they pay to repair or replace the camera, or return the value for the equipment. Good luck.

Once you get a significant number of dead pixels, say 10,000 out of 18 million, they might replace it.
 
What they can do is to map out the dead pixels so that they don't appear in the image.  Canon DPP and most good software will remove them with NR.
 
If they are Hot Pixels, then its a issue for video.  Canon can map them out as well. 
 
Don't expect a new sensor though.

Is it just me, or do you write in Portuguese, as I do? :P Returning to the subject, personally, I do not think the store will refuse to exchange the camera only by the lack of accessories, if the dead pixels warrant return.
