If you are facing the front of your TV, the red CRT is on your left. To get access to remove the CRT assembly, you will need to remove the speakers cover and one more wood or plastic cover that is protecting the CRTs.

Blue spot

the model number KP-51WS510 deosnt use a bulb or lamp. and touching the face of the lamp will not cause color problems in the picture. if your tv is an LCD projection then i would suspect the optical engine as the culprit. to check when you turn the tv off do you still see the blue distortion? if so then you have a bad optical long as it is an LCD projection.
