Default question on lights

hey guys im pretty new to maya and all. jus tryin sum tuts on the internet and decided to try somtin. but i ran into a problem on the lightin part. ok so here the scene

I'm not exactly sure what you're saying to be honest... but at a guess, the light blue bit you are describing is a reflection of the plane to the left of the sphere object. If you are talking about the very left side where the blue is more luminant, I think thats just an effect the light has at that angle on that shader.
