Welcome to HCM.
Slight colour difference is nothing to worry about. If there is itching or pain in the region, then you need to consult a dermatologist to rule out fungal or bacterial infection, otherwise ignore it.
If there is discharge from nipple, then you should consult a surgeon or endocrinologist.
Wish you all the best.
