What is meaning of bleeding water stain inside bath tub drainage area?


We have close to 30year old custom home and we are not the original owner. There's no leakage, but 5-6" diameter of water stain is oddly seen around drainage of bath tub.
We are thinking of small remodeling on bathroom soon, but if we can, I would like to not replace bath tub.

Is this type of water stain normal for fiberglass bath tub?

I want to upload picture, but not sure how to.
I would love to hear any comment or experience to repair this issue on tub.

Does that patch remain wet long after the rest of the tub has dried off?

In that case most likely an iron stain or whatever residue is left behind after not perfectly pure water evaporates.
