Default Dark spots on Nose

Hey guys! I noticed just a week or so ago that my little hog has dark spots on her nose. At first they seemed like they were dirt but after a bath they didn't come off. I woke up this morning and the spots seemed a little darker and even have an orange-ish tint around them. I was wondering if anybody had any idea what the spots could be? Her behavior hasn't changed and she doesn't flinch or anything when I touch her nose. I plan to take her to a local vet next week if the spots get any worse but I figured I would take a chance and see if anybody had a similar situation before. I've attached a few pictures of her nose, sorry they're a little blurry.

Thanks in advance for any help!
