Black eye spot on lower eyelid

hi,

I'm 24 yrs old female and just last week I observed a black color spot on my lower left eyelid. I would like to know what it is and is this something serious that I need to pay attention.

It may be a normal freckle or nevus or normal racial pigmentation or more rarely it can be a serious lesion such as melanoma.  It all depends on the size and characteristics and it is possible that a biopsy may need to be done.  See an ophthalmologist right away.
