In brief: Inflammation/pigment

If the pimple just healed, this is likely some residual inflammation.
If it's been a while, you may have some post inflammatory hyper pigmentation. It may resolve on it's own, but if its been there for a while you might try a bleaching cream or steroid ointment on it.
