The hot water is brown after water softener regeneration

We have a water softener system in the house we just started renting. Don't know how long it's been unused.

My husband got it started with just advice from other people that have had them. At night it cycles a bunch of water and by morning it's brown.

However, the cold water isn't brown only the hot. What is this? If it is the resin what is the origin of the resin & is it safe to bathe in?
