With that close up it's hard to tell.
Painted, Melaniet, foil?
Looks like rust from an old screw hole.
Look on the back side of the door, see old screw holes?

I stained the hutch and then I went to the bathroom and I opened up the cabinet when I saw the stain on the stain on the cabinet now. What does Melaniet, foil? mean?

We need to know what the kitchen cabinet is made of. That looks like a rust spot.

It's very hard to advise when we don't know what we are looking at.
You stained or painted the hutch white ?

To clarify - the hutch and white cabinet are two different pieces, right??
What have you tried?

If the stain on the white cabinet is left over residue stain [from your fingers] scrubbing with mineral spirits should remove the dried stain.

You can buy mineral spirits in any hardware, big box, paint, home improvement store, etc.
It's a type of paint thinner so you'd find it in the paint department right near the paints and painting supplies.

If I use it, it won't remove any white paint only the stain.

Using a small amount on a clean rag should not affect the white paint.

Mineral spirits shouldn't affect any cured coating. If mineral spirits hurt the existing coating I'd be concerned about what was wrong with the coating. As Pete said it's always best to start out slow.
