What is this and how can I get rid of it?

I’ve had braces for almost two weeks now and like 2/3 days after getting them i noticed this on my tooth. It’s only on this tooth none of the rest. I find it strange because i don’t eat or anything in this side of my mouth and now matter how much i brush and use mouthwash it won’t go. It’s yellow-white

    It looks like a bit of stain, the tooth may have shifted or the gums have and this part may have been under the gums.  Wait until the next dental appointment and ask the orthodontist or dentist (whichever you see next). They will be able to take a look at it.  It may be a natural stain that they could bleach out once your done with the braces and all the shifting has stopped.
