There may be a couple of things happening. First, what type of wood are you useing? Some woods react with sun and or light and begin to turn color naturally. such as Padauk and Cherry. 3 days don’t sound like enough time for this option. Could be diffence in grain direction, but I dont’ think this is likely as well.

Second, were you using any other products in the same area? Using a product such as WD-40 from an areosol can can sometimes leave a resude on peices near by from overspray (this happen to me before.)

If you used a stain, not a dye. the color should be fairly shallow in the wood. you should be able to sand off down to the same grit and restain. If you used a dye, it will take a bit more work.
