I found a rock chip on my hood that is about 2-3mm in diameter and its deep enough to see the bare metal. It has a bit of rust building around it as well.

Do I have to do any prep work before applying touchup paint and a layer of clear coat because of the rust?

Is it a brownish color? It might be primer, I've heard sometimes primer is brown... Idk about that but if u want what I did was took a pin and scratched the rust away, cleaned the area and went to walmart and got a duplicolor touch up paint pen/brush. Their 2.50 in the auto section. They also have the touch up paint and a separate clear coat pen. I prefer to use the OEM stuff since the clear coat is mixed in. If you use the OEM bottle use a match stick and dab it layer by layer with 5 minute intervals to dry. When it's filled let it dry for a day or two and buff out.
