Shell Rot? Urgent Help?

I was bathing my baby Hermann tortoise this morning and came across what looks like a hole forming on his underside. I have no idea what's going on please help - can you post pictures?

4 Month Old Hermann - Little Bit Worried About Health

30 November 2015 - 04:15 PM

Very new to keeping a tortoise and just a bit worried about his general health and happiness.
He's around 4 months old, lives in a nice big table with the special soil, rocks and things, shallow water bowl, slate for eating off of and a combined heat and uv bulb. I've only had him for about two weeks and I'm not really sure about him. He mostly eats food if offered or put near him, doesn't seem to like the slate. I bathe him daily but never see him urinate. Seems to be pooping regularly and drinks enough (I think?)
He's been making a small noise occasionally - kind of a clicking noise and has squeaked a couple of times and I'm not sure what that means. He's not especially active. My room has started to smell a little weird also. He also does a weird thing with his legs sometimes - moving them backwards and forwards.

I don't know if I'm being paranoid, I seem to be doing everything right from what I've read and looked up.
