Looks normal to me. This kind of mark is created by the brakes pads. The line indicates how much of the disc is being used by the pad for braking. I also have this on my swift's front discs.

Please take the bike to your Service center & they should be able to sort it out

Clean disk pads and then check for any sounds while braking.

From the description of the sound and the mark on the disk it seems like some foreign matter is stuck in between the rotor and the pads, or it might be a defective pad. Get it checked with the service center. Sound from the front disk is abnormal.
