A lot of bananas turn pink on the PS as they grow, or maybe you have a Rose, or even a Red. Pictures would be most helpful!

If you mean that grey in the upper P-stem I would say either insect/animal damage or some sort of damage to P-stem. THis happens, when the tissue is scarred or simply damaged deeply enough and then it starts to change in such a strange mush. Just let it be. If it progresses, then there might be an infection in the wound.

Can't say that I have seen that - but as long as the leaves are healthy, I woudn't sweat it. Most of the reds are quite red when the emerge, and fade more to a dirty green as they are exposed to the sunlight, so I'm thinking it it very unusual.
