What is going on with my tire?

My low tire pressure indicator came on, so I filled up my tire, and started looking at it for nails, and saw something going on with one of my tread I have never seen before, and I am assuming this is causing my problem. Anyone ever see tread do this before? Is this indicative of a flaw in the tire that may be under warranty? And more importantly, from a safety perspective, is this tire getting ready to blow out?

Looks like a tire plug. Spray some windex on it and see if it’s leaking.

I must be losing my mind. I don’t remember ever getting this tire plugged, but sounds like a good explanation. Thanks guys!
