There are many possibilities. There may be a steel pipe or fitting at the water heater that is rusting on the inside and causing the color. If it is an electric water heater and you have a tank with a Duron liner and have recently had an element replaced they could have used the wrong element and that can cause the rust color. It can be the tank itself corroding on the inside.
