Help! Identify hardwood floor discoloration - spreading

This is the floor in my dining room and over the past year, this reddish colration has been growing and seems to be spreading. It is warping the wood and I am afraid that it will start to rot. Any ideas? It is a 100+ year-old floor, I do not think anything was spilled onto it.

Welcome to the forums!

Generally warping means it's getting wet Does it feel damp? have you tried to clean it with anything?

It's just pine.
Window leaking, no moisture barrier under the house, ice dam?
