Borged seatpost?

Took the carbon seatpost out of my Felt today to give it a wipe down and look over and noticed it's showing signs of discolouration. Now I've read that discolouration can be a sign of fatigue and that there's a new seatpost on the horizon.

Or is it scratched in the clearcoat? Worth noting there's an alu sleeve inside the frame where the post slides in. Anyway, take a look and see if this sort of thing is familiar...

No creaking sounds or anything to report. Yet. And in terms of torque, it's tightened just enough to stop it moving - a 1/4 turn anti-clockwise and I can adjust.

Thanks for your time.
