Orange Bacterial Colonies on my Brie, is this normal?

I just got back from Whole Foods and bought a wedge of Isigny Ste Mere brie. I unwrapped the package and that is when I noticed little round smooth less than .5mm orange bacterial colonies on the rind next to the plastic. Normally when I get brie the rind is white and cream color.

I am wondering if there was moisture trapped when the cheese was wrapped, causing these colonies to form or is this normal for this cheese? Bottom line: should I eat it?
