Why is this egg white pinkish/reddish througout? Is it safe to eat?

I already am halfway on a double batch of chocolate chip cookies (in other words, there's a whole bunch of butter and sugar already at stake). I added in an egg without looking at it and the egg white is universally pinkish reddish, still transparent, but definitely strange looking. Googling has been useless: this is more than a blood or meat spot, and the other answers are "no way! that will kill you!". What am I looking at and do I need to start my cookies over? Thanks in advance.
