Get it checked ASAP: A moving "reddish line" is sometimes an indication of an active infection (sometimes known as cellulitis). The spot on the bottom of the foot may be an injury, ulcer and/or bite. You need to have this checked asap.

Where on the foot: Is it in the forefoot, midfoot or bottom of the heel. It will need an evaluation by a dermatologist. Ask your physician for a referral.
