Swede seedlings discoloured

Hi all, Please see photos. Seedlings have developed distortion plus slight pinkish colour on the true  leaves albeit very small. Does anybody know what's wrong. The first leaves (cotyledons) were fine and I then covered the area with fleece to stop bugs making holes in them.

    I wouldn’t worry about a pinkish colouring on the leaves. That’s not unusual for swedes. 
    Looks like the slugs and snails may be tucking into the leaves tho’. 

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

    Thank you 'Dovefromabove' I did put slug pellets down, the non-toxic type, when I first sowed seed so maybe I should put more down.  I'll just wait to see how the seedlings develop.
