This can be pretty normal. If you are concerned, you can use a fungicide for preventative treatment. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/info/using-fungicides-in-garden.htm

It may be worth noting that giving that some extra light will be very beneficial to the plant. 200 watts of horticultural lighting will be plenty if it doesn't get to spend much time outside.
