It seems to me that the photo is underexposed (especially the whole strawberry beside the glass), causing noise which is most noticeably on the glass. There is a bit of a white balance issue as well. When you zoom in to 100% it becomes clearer with the noise. I would point out that you also have a hair by the strawberry and the glass, which I don't think was placed there intentionally. I would clone it out. If you are working in RAW format, you should have no problems making the adjustments and cloning out the hair.
Best of luck to you.

Looking at your photo, it appears underexposed to me - especially noticeable on the whole strawberry. Overall the photo seems a bit dull and grey and would benefit from some lightening and a bit more contrast. When you zoom in to 100% magnification, there is a lot of noise, especially noticeable on the glass. I also noticed a couple of hairs (which I don't think are an intentional part of your composition) that should be removed. If you are working with RAW format, all of these issues could be easily rectified.
Good luck and I hope this helped.
Thanks for your help!
It does not only “look underexposed” it also is:
Some of the highlights and the complete whites are missing. And @reedesign1912 correctly names the strawberry, which should be the attraction point of your composition. And it simply feels underexposed. The light touched mainly the container behind, leaving the strawberry unlighted.
The noise is very noticeable. You should have lowered the ISO. And you should start using the manual exposure program.
From a hygienic perspective, you should remove the hair. Hair makes your picture looking unprofessional.
You should examine your shots at 100% (sharpness) and 200 or 300% (artefacts).
