I have a belkin glass on my iphone 7 installed at apple store oct 2016 then march 2 it had dust under it and I contact belkin for a replacement they told me once I get the new to go back to apple for them to install it.

Will apple reinstall it for me like belkin told me ?

I guess you could just call the Apple Store and find out. If someone there says yes, make sure to record their name (just in case)....On the other hand, I've installed the Zagg protectors on more than a dozen iPhones. It's pretty easy and the Belkin Glass for Watch had a sweet fixture to ensure proper fitting. Not sure what the iPhone one comes with. I'm sure you could do it yourself with minimal risk.

Seriously... how is anyone supposed to answer that question?
You installed a $.99 one, why not install the one from Bellingham when you get it?

For example I installed three screen protector on my iPhone 7 to get a perfect fit till I get a new when I install the belkin one won't it cause dead pixel or no ?
The only time I caused dead pixel was when I use the alcohol pads to clean screen but this time I did not.

You can't cause a dead pixel by wiping/cleaning the screen with an alcohol pad....

Did you bother to inspect it immediately after Apple installed it?
Yes i did but it's a replacement from Belkin not apple and apple installed it for me
So that means you didn't see the hair after the application and before leaving the store... it's not Belkins fault that someone else didn't install it flawlessly.

Apple exchanged my replacement for the store one that works for the Machine can I use my original receipt of proof of purchase to continue ask replacement from Belkin when needed or do I need to ask for the receipt of the exchange they did at the store ??
