Is this bumblefoot?

Hi, I have a Pekin duck called Wrinkle, she’s 6 weeks old.

This is our first time raising a duck, and she’s our pet duck. We’ve been taking her to parks and places for walk and swim, normally she’s pretty good at walking and following, but we’d have to pick her up sometimes.
Couple days ago we noticed some dark spot on her foot, I’m not sure if this is bumblefoot? She seems pretty normal, I can’t tell if it’s uncomfortable for her or not.
If it’s bumblefoot, should we stop let her walk? How much should a Pekin walk? We’re thinking to get her a pair of those duck boots, any advice would help, thank you!!

What sort of bedding is she on ? Looking more closely at the picture there appear to be several small abrasions.

We use pine and paper bedding, like photo below.
You think that’s bad for her feet? She doesn’t like to walk much, so we’re trying to take her for a walk everyday, not sure if that’s good or bad?
