It might be oils from your hands if you had some residue from lotions/oils/perfumes/soaps on your hands during water changes..

The thing is I don't use any lotions/oils/perfumes I do use soap but I wash my hands and dry them really well

What color is the gravel you are using? As well as are you using decorations that weren't made for fish tanks that could of leeched colors? Even silk plants bought in the home decoration section of stores could leech out dyes.

It may be the gravel.. some colored gravels tend to leech out the dye. I'd remove it and soak it for a few days to a week, changing out the water regularly to keep the dye out of there before trying it again.
