I just bought It brand new, It's a genuine Thermos brand double wall glassware thermal carafe. Never used until I bought It. I tried cleaning the inside out this morning with soap and water to no avail.

That is puzzling. If it doesn't stop with a few rinses it might be best to exchange it. Same or different would be up to you, but maybe that one wasn't assembled quite right.

It used to be (don't know if it still is) that the lids were hollow and filled with small white foam pellets. If that is still the case, I would think it would be possibly related to this.  I would also take it back.

 
The world needs more outstanding coffee.

Pour your coffee in a clean glass and into the glass thermos. If no white bits in the glass, then it's your thermos. Wash your thermos with warm soapy water and a bottle brush. Rinse thermos with warm/hot water and then pour boiling water into it. Check for white bits. Pour coffee and check for white bits. If none appears, then it's your cap as someone has already suggested. Get a different thermos. Go to amazon.com and search for "double wall glass tumbler".

Well this morning I was getting ready to dump out the preheat water In the thermos carafe and Instead of unscrewing the lid and dumping the water out, I let the water run through the lid and sure enough I didn't have the sediment on my coffee!! Problem solved. Dirty lid!

Yowza, I'm thinking biomass.  Take your lid and repeatedly run hot vinegar through it, followed by hot water.
