Dill pickle problem

Sorry for the double post...I accidentally posted this to the wrong forum.
I tried my hand at doing dill pickles yesterday. Everything went as planned, no problems. Simple recipe (vineger-water-salt brine poured over cukes w/ dill and garlic inside the jars).

When I woke up this morning I noticed that the garlic cloves in the jar had turned a very pretty blue. It doesn't seem right. Is it mold? Do I need to start over? If anyone can help, I'd certainly appreciate the insight!
