Where did you get the turtle?? i know stores in Canada and united states used (or maybe still do ) paint the turtles' shells in order to sell them as the shells would appeal to children. do you have pictures? you may even have nabbed by a terrible sales clerk and was sold a red eared slider..

if your in ANY way concerned bring it to a vet to have it looked at, if its paint they'll need to safely remove it for you. If its viral or any other type infection they can help you out and give meds...Since there's no pics and no clear description i dunno what else to say. Good luck.

Painted turtles are supposed to be yellow and green in color. Some even have red on them. Do a Google search, there are many, many photos out there - as well as some care sheets to learn proper care. If you're still in doubt, a vet visit certainly cannot hurt.
