No, a discolouration is not called a die error. What you have is some sort of stain or foreign substance on your coin. No "official" name for it. Can you tell if the spot might be glue? (Is the spot raised on it?)

It sounds like then you have some sort of stain. Lots of liquids could discolour copper. Sorry I couldn't help more. Again, welcome!

to CCF. Looks like something "stuck" to it. A piece of tin foil maybe?

I agree that it happened after leaving the mint. To me, it looks most like a drop of solder. Also, welcome to CCF!

If the edges are not even the slightest bit raised, then I'm unsure, but it didn't happen at the mint.

Believe the official term for this is having a piece of foil stuck to the coin. Probably gunked on there with some nasty sticky substance it encountered in the pretty degrading existence of a penny.

A die error (AKA a die event or variety) would not affect the color of the coin, only the appearance of the of the image struck on it.
