My guess it's algea. Try followiing the cleaning instructions. You basically put it through a cycle using an alakaline first and then if that doesn't work you run a cycle using an acidic solution. I'm only doing this from memory so read your instruction manual before proceeding. It is not normal to have a black discharge. The discharge should look pretty much like the incoming water just more saline.
