Strange red dot

Hey guys I noticed this strange red dot that appeared on my recording. It lasted for about 10 minutes. Then when I changed my location and started recording again it was gone. It's like a dead pixel but its on the tape. I removed it easily in final cut but any idea how it could have happened? In the picture it's inside the green box. Does it mean something is wrong with my camera? Some sort of precursor to a problem?

probably just a water droplet, since I see two other there in the upper right corner.

Since it's red and is over a red background, I also vote for water. Clean the lens and see if it's still there.

Well I put the tape in a deck and it still showed the red dot only for 10 minutes. It was really strange but definitely not a water droplet unless you somehow mean a droplet on the plastic bag that is appearing as a red dot? But if so, why?
