Is this tail rot or shedding?

I bought my bearded dragon about 3 weeks ago from a breeder he said she was about 3 months old and she was starting to she'd on her tail. She shed everything off except for the very tip of it and I'm nervous it's tail rot. I texted the breeder but still haven't gotten an answer on what he thinks. This is my first reptile so I want someone with experience to tell me their opinion if anyone minds helping me?

Rex has something like that as well, though his tail is just darker at the tips when he's cold, this might just an odd coloration or your beardies tail is shedding soon, I know for a fact that Rex is shedding his tail at the moment so it might be, although I am very very new to beardies and even though I've done buckets of researching don't trust my word because I'm probably wrong :p

Hi there, can you get 1-2 more clear pics ? There is a tiny area of trauma, whether from a nip or stuck shed but it may not get any worse . You can get betadine to dab on it daily [ from drug store ] as a precaution, watered down 50/50. Then just watch that dark area to see that it doesn't spread upward.
