I wouldn't worry about it. My old sump had a dent in it. If it was blocking or broke the oil pickup you would have known about it by now.

i'd say someone tried to jack it up on the sump more than likely and as reaper said above not really an issue

No big deal. Dented sumps, dented exhaust pipes and fuel tanks. I think they run better after a few dings lol
