Could be anything from something in the holster(if used) or gunk build up from your fingers. Have you tried cleaning it off with some solvent?

Looks like copper/brass has worn off onto the finish if your slide.

Probably from the rivets on your jeans or something like that. The melonite is much harder than the other metal, and it rubs off onto the slide like metal scratching off on sandpaper.

I've had a bunch of marks on my slides from the rivets on my jeans before, so that's my guess. Rubbing with some oil (I use Fireclean) usually gets it off.
