Weird very light colored egg yolk? Is it OK? [Moved from Home Cooking]

I am baking some banana bread and just cracked my two eggs into the bowl. One has a really light colored yolk.... not dark yellow/orange of a normal egg, but light light yellow, almost colorless! What does this mean? Is it bad? I scooped it out and added another egg, but it's white portion is still in the batter.
I know that there is a variation of color based on what the chickens eat, but this is from a regular batch of grocery store eggs, which are usually very uniform in color/quality.

Any advice?
