Brief Answer:
Monitor this for now!

Detailed Answer:

I have reviewed both images. It appears the area is slightly inflamed and explains the reason for this discoloration. While I cannot immediately confirm what the cause is, there is no emergency. This should be able to resolve spontaneously unless something else comes up.

For now, observe only. Avoid picking on it too often. Report any changes to me for review and further guidance.

I wish you well.
