Coffee Table Refinishing

Hello,
I recently bought a coffee table off of offer up and am hoping to refinish it. I stripped and sanded the top and noticed a discolored area on the the right side. I am not sure if this is some kind of water damage or other stain. Or if this piece is not real wood but pine veneering and I sanded too much down to the MDF. If anyone can provide insight, I would appreciate it. See picture. You will notice the discoloration in the middle along the right side of the table.
Thanks.

The wood under is probably not going to be very good or provide a satisfactory surface. You would be better off putting a new veneer over the existing. It is not hard to do.

Sure looks like you sanded through a veneer.

Iím going to try to remove the entire veneer and see if I can stain the wood thatís under. Hopefully it works out. Itís a very nice table.
