Is this normal ? 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL WR

Hello,

I found that there is something wrong with my 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL WR.
It looks like there is something behind under the first element of glass. It looks like traces of water or i dont know.
what could it be ? is it normal ?

It could also be condensation. Could have happened if the lens was taken from cold area to an outside humid environment.
Place open in a non-dusty warm dry environment and see if it goes away.

Condensation i think is impossible. There is summer now and i never taken this lense from cold area into home.
