Please tell me this is a crack in the paint!

I sure hope this is a crack in the paint. been riding around town on this bike, and it felt super stiff. So stiff, it felt weird to me since I've never ridden a carbon road bike before. What are some opinions on this crack. I don't have the BB tool to get the fixed cup off.

Paint doesn't just crack. Looks like a wrecked frame to me.

Bananas! I think the parts are nice enough to get my money back, Dura ace wheels, 600 everything else, but I wanted to keep the parts and sell the frame.
