I just ate a little bit of cheese with a brown mold or similar growth on it. What was this?

I often eat mini Babybel cheese - the kind that come in a little wax package. Today I opened one, and didn't realize until after a bite and a half (most was spit out) that there was something brown on the bottom that I hadn't seen. I swallowed a small bite or two but spit out the rest. It was only on one side of the cheese, and it almost looked corroded. I washed my mouth thoroughly with mouthwash afterward. What could that have been? Should I be worried? I don't feel sick to my stomach yet and this was probably 15 minutes or so ago.
