Maybe a stone chip, remove the damaged paint, clean it all up and seal. And respray/polish it's nothing new, really.

I had a tiny bit of rust which my brother pointed out...

Treated it with some hammerite...

Then used a cotton bud to dab a bit of paint on it...

That ain't rust. Rust is where half the car is missing or its on the frame.

Anyway, dab of Hammerite Kurust or similar, allow to convert, dab on paint, sorted.
