Hi there,

That is just a dirty tail shed.
No tail rot there.

Well that makes me feel better. Thank you for your input! Much appreciated! Was wondering if there is anything specific I should do to help her out? Or if you think it actually even bugs her at all?

You can give her a warm 10 minute soak and use a soft toothbrush to gently stroke downward to the end of the tail. That will help loosen it and even if it doesn't come off then it helps loosen it and will feel better.
