Headlight Problem

Ok today when I went to my car to go to work I notice the very top of the drivers side headlight has got little what look like cracks in it. I think it is just the finish starting to peal off but wanted to see what you guys thought before I ruin a set of headlights. Could I just sand the whole thing down and put a new coat of clear coat on it?

Are they stock or aftermarket?
the aftermarket lights are known to get stress cracks
