It's possible, hard to tell from the pic. Sure it's not just a stain.

Grout could be starting to break down in that area. Idk. When it dries out the water stain goes away. Just a Thought. Any staining on ceilings below or are you on a slab?

Others will be along with more advice/suggestions.

Looks to me like the glazing is gone from the tile, possibly from chemical exposure (somebody pour something nasty down that drain at some point?).
