Does it move at all, if not then it could be a piece of food. I have seen this in my aquarium just clean it up and slowly increase water movement and filtration. This is just so that food doesn't have a place to settle and grow mucus, fungus or (Jelly stuff.).

Looks like feces, and some times fish throw up. Pink would come from the red pigment in the food, and also at times fungus eats away at the food also.
