Can anyone please tell me what is going on with this coin? Is the coin missing clad layers or plating?

Hello and

Looks to me like environmental damage. Possibly a metal detector find.

If the cladding was missing, the strike would be weaker and it would be a copper colour.
Try rubbing an area, sometimes the discolouration will come off exposing the nickel underneath.

@az, first welcome to CCF. Second, can you please also post the weight of this coin? If it is within mint tolerance, then it isn't missing a clad layer.

When you look at the edge of the coin, the copper red color would be on the surface of the coin like one of the BU copper cents:

I mean red.
As mentioned already, the strike will be weaker because of the thickness of that thin clad layer is missing.

Note how weak the strike is on the outside edge, because of the lacking metal for the strike.

Your coin just has some toning on the coin, not a missing clad issue. If you rubbed on the devices, the gray color will come back on the higher devices.

Did you find this coin in a field? from the looks it appears to have been in the dirt for some time

Environmental toning/staining/discolouration. As mentioned above, may have spent time buried underground part of it's life, or even having been in a fire. Post mint damage ( PMD).We see a lot of these.

I didn't find it underground, actually got it in change from a store. Would this be considered missing clad?

This coin is copper, It is not clad.

A clad coin is a coin that has multiple layers of metal in it. Most current U.S. clad coins consist of an inner core of pure copper, with outer layers of a nickel-copper alloy that looks like silver. Examples of this type of clad coin are the U.S. Quarter and Half Dollar .
