Dented rotor backing plate

So I have noticed a strange random clunk sound coming from my rear sub frame lately as I hit any sort of sharp bump in the street, or pulling into my garage (over a 3" concrete slab)

I started to look under my car and noticed on the driver side my rotor backing plate has a decent dent in it...not a clue how this could possibly occur, also not sure if this is the cause either. I feel like something is clunking with my rear suspension but I cant seem to figure out what

Anyone else have this rotor backing plate dented at all? I cant seem to figure out how this would occur, would this be a warranty issue?

If its the same thing I was looking at, easy to do when changing tires... Can you just bend it back?

It seems liek it could be bent back

Thing is that I have never changed that tire or wheel except when the dealer mounted the original 19's that I brought with me...

Any idea how to dent it back to shape? Doesnt seem like a very tough piece in general
