Bathroom Ceiling Help - Total Novice!

Hello everyone! This is my first post and I'm a complete novice to home improvements. That being said I have a lot around my house I need to work on and need help. I'm hoping this is a good place to start!

I have a bathroom in my house that needs updating and there are several things I want to do including painting. Before I do paint there is an issue with the ceiling directly over the bathtub that needs to be addressed and I don't know what it is or what I should do. I've attached pictures of what I'm talking about. Could someone please help me??

I really appreciate everyone's time!!

Looks like you had a leak from above and it loosened the tape. The loose tape will need to be removed and replaced and then the area smoothed with joint compound before priming and repainting.
