The yellow could be from the bleach or from rust.

Try pouring white vinegar onto the stain. Let that sit for about 20 minutes. Then launder as usual but with NO bleach. This will get rid of the stain if it in mineral in nature, like rust.

It's also possible the yellowing is from the bleach, itself. Many people don't realize that Clorox causes clothes to turn yellow. You can fix that yellowing with Oxi Clean.

If the vinegar fails, wash the pants as usual, but add 2 scoops of Oxi Clean to the load.

One of these two solutions should work for you.

Hope this helps.
