Nope, Clary's palm is not smudged by dirt or something. It is the very first rune she has drawn on herself. These magical symbols serve as protective talismans against hostile paranormal creatures.

"Clary has the ability to both create new symbols and make runes that are stronger than other people's. In this scene, she is fending off an enemy with the first rune that she’s ever drawn on herself at the amazement of the other Shadowhunters," Clare said.
