Could be due to some inflammatory cause. Needs further evaluation

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. I have checked the attached image. The orange discoloration is rather unusual. It could be due to an inflammation. You may try gurgling with lukewarm water and see if it helps. If it does not, it would be worthwhile to get it evaluated properly. I would insist you to visit an ENT specialist to get it evaluated further.

Let me know if I could help further.
