Hello everyone I was looking for an answer for some time, but I didnt find anything. I have problem with my Venus Fly Trap, its my first season with carnivorous plants. So I noticed scars on the leaves and traps, and i don't know what could be the reason of that - is it some kind of insect, or reaction for something I did?

I agree with the lack of light assessment, but that's not the cause of the scars.
Scars can be caused by new growth being interrupted as it's forming. What I mean is for example if I order a plant and it's shipped with new growth developing. That new growth will more than likely be scarred or deformed. Abrupt changes in weather can cause these issues as well.
Watch the new developing growth, if it continues to scar after the plant is settled in to its new home, which can take months sometimes, then be concerned about it. One or two leaves really shouldn't be cause for concern though.

Well it has been 2 weeks I have my plant for over 3 months from now, lately it had not much sun, mostly coz of the weather that has been where I live. Also kinda my fault because noticed too late that it's not getting enough of sun on the window it was placed. Noticed more of these 'scars' so it must be the reason

adaetz100: Sarracenia purpurea tends to add a lot of red/purple to its offspring, but there are some lovely dark red flava x leucophylla crosses too. Look up 'Royal Ruby' if you're not familiar with it already--it's a natural flava x leuco hybrid
