Exclamation Filter Problem?

So I hooked up rubin's filter and a couple hours later I noticed this:

It's a bad pic, but its the best I got. I'll explain it: where the water comes to the carbon, there's some light brown carbon. It's a brand new filter, so I can't be needing a new cartridge already. Anybody know what's wrong?

Did you rinse the cartridge before placing it inside the filter?

Just to be safe discard the cartridge and use a new one.

I don't have anymore cartridges and I don't think I'll be able to get another anytime soon.

Rinse it out with hot water and see if it does it again.

Rinsed the cartridge and everything is food now, planning on putting Rubin in the tank in the next half hour or so.


EDIT: Did I mention that this is a new tank that I got for Rubin?
