I have the stock rear brakes... It seems like the rear right one is all stained with what seems to be brake fluid and dirt covering it... Is this bad? Do i have a leak? The ride breaks fine...no noises.

Looks more like an axle seal leak. Check to see if your brake master cylinder is low on fluid and have someone step hard on the brakes while you are watching that caliper for a leak...I think you'll find the brakes okay.
