HELP!! Goldfish has black/red injury-like markings by gills!

BTaylor

Hi I am new to this forum and just won a goldfish at my local fair. I have had goldfish before but never in any sort of aquarium or anything like that. Anyways, as I was taking my little buddy home, I noticed he has some blood red and black markings near his gills, and I am worried he has some sort of disease like Bacterial Gill Disease or "Black Spots". He has not moved into his official home yet and is staying in a temporary vase-like home until tomorrow when we get his bigger home. I dont know any pH levels, but I assume they weren't spectacular before, considering he came from a fair. He seems to be acting normal, swimming around the middle of his cage and opening and closing his mouth a lot. Any advice on what is wrong and how I can fix it would be great. I know the photos aren't great, but hopefully you can see what I mean. PHOTOS BELOW:
