New EK Acetal/Nickel 1080 ti water block. I've only had 2 CPU and 2 GPU blocks but this doesn't look right....Im frickin nervous.

Look at the bottom right of the first image:

Now look closer:

What the heck is going on here?

Is it leaking? Or corrosion? It's brand new,whats the dark spot that has moved into the liquid chamber? The brown/orange spots under the dark black spot worries me as water should not be in there correct? I hope its just fungus or bacteria and I can drain it in a few weeks and flush. Looking to the experts here.

EDIT- Added a crappy video if you can FF to the end when the camera somewhat focuses underneath it sort of looks like a crack, or the source of whats wrong? This is my first clear block so not sure if im exaggerating but it looks like cause for concern.
