Looks 100% normal to issues...what you are seeing is normal run in wear. Run it as is, that thin coating gets scuffed as soon as the engine is started and any number of small particles can cause the minor scuffing you are seeing. As long as your not seeing copper backing plating your good to go.

Here's a sample of what it will look like after 150 000 miles with regular oil changes.
