help - pink spot on turtle's chin?

My RES has a pinkish spot on her chin (see photos). I could not remove it by rubbing it with my finger. She is otherwise healthy and behaving completely normally. Any idea what this is and what should be done? Thank you! :)

Is it possible she rubbed it when going against the glass? I'd keep an eye on it but I don't think it's something to worry about.

Thanks Steve. It's possible, although the spot is in an indent. I would have expected a bruise to land on a more protruding part. I'll keep an eye out.

It might be a scab or something similar to a callous. Those usually disappear on its own.
