Thats normal and not Trich mold. The bags not a perfect environment and aborts are common. The bluing/greenish coloration is bruising, but not from direct handling. The substrate will discolor as the bag gets older and dries out. You should consider misting the bag between harvests.

Mold would be obvious and would leave a powdery residue on your hands when touched. The normal blue staining will not come off on your hands. Mold will also smell musty and unpleasent like an old attic or inside a vacumn cleaner bag. Avoid inhaling or handling molds as some can be toxic or cause allergic reactions. It is also recommend that you do not open moldy substrates in your growing area to avoid future contamination problems.
