It could possibly be the start of shell rot, and it is contagious. Check this site and the messege board for the links to good web pages for treating this. I am in the process of treating it on a rescued turtle.

Here are pictures of the turtle that I am treating. Please remember that I rescued this turtle. Under no circumstances would I let this continue in my tank, it would have been taken care of long before it got this bad.
