We all tend to think about mold a lot more these days, but more likely
just dust attracted there due to a little moisture due to the temperature
difference at the joist. You may get really lucky and after it warms up on a
dry day you may try dusting (or compressed air). However I suspect it is
time for a newly painted ceiling.
