Vessels bulge usuall: And r not straight. It's not likely a busted vessell. It's probably your pigmentation.

It's the grip: If you usually use a tight grip around the base of your shaft and rub hard, you're going to get a brown circle around yourself just beyond where you hand goes. Most teenaged guys have this. It's a good idea to vary your technique to prepare you for different possible partners, but your mark isn't a problem. When the time comes for you to move to a real relationship, love responsibly and well.
