Bleach does not break down in the bottle. It's primarily a sodium hypochlorite solution, so unless it is contaminated or you let the water evaporate, nothing happens.

Hard to say for sure, but I suspect acidovorax - a.k.a. pseudomonas. If so, it is a water-borne bacterium that typically starts with a ~1/4" spot, then gets brown around it.
