It would be extremely rare for a dog Gracie's age to have mammary cancer, and even more rare since she was spayed at 6 months. It highly unlikely this is cancer.
It may be irritated, or the nipple could be infected. You could try applying some anti inflammatory ointment such as Cortaid or Cortizone 10 once to twice daily, and see if the redness goes down. If the nipple is not painful, and if she is eating and drinking well, she will probably be fine.
