Help Assessing Mold Situation

I recently bought a 4plex(2-story) multifamily unit where I am completely renovating 2 of the units while the other 2 are being rented.

The first task I've had was to remove the popcorn ceilings. While in the kitchen (under upstairs bath) a piece of sheet rock came off due to the age and the popcorn ceiling not giving at that area. This is the only place it happened but there seems to be mildew or possibly mold on the broken out piece.

Can someone help me assess this and give any input on steps they've taken during similar situations? Of course I'd like to avoid tearing out big areas of the ceiling to fix the issue but if it has to be done.

Pictures attached.
