Just above the water level, that is the only spot. Everything is perfect with pool. Go to wipe off whatever this is and it just smears. Is it suntan lotion? Looks like mud but is not. What to use to clean it? Thanks

Likely it is sunscreen. You can use a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser or one of the knock-off erasers in the cleanser isle of the grocery store.

Welcome to TFP!!

Any chance you just had a stamped concrete deck installed? The accent powder often collects in the skimmers for a few days after the install.
