I just purchased my first "real" bicycle- excited! It's a fitness hybrid. After only 10 minutes of riding, I already had bruises on my butt in this short amount of time. Is this normal? (I'm a female)

The bruises are in a straight line on either side of my inner "gluteal sulcus" closer to my lady parts (kind of uncomfortable to show this area to a bike shop employee, I mean I literally had to spread my butt and lift it up to find the bruises).

Can anyone tell me if this is an indicator of what is wrong with the position or size of my seat?
