I was just looking over my bike and I noticed this shiny silver spot on my black engine which looks like it has had something removed from it and now there is an exposed thread so I am worried about rust and what (if anything) is missing.

Hear from you guys soon!

That is where the battery ground connects on a cross bike. Nothing fell off it an unused bolt hole on steel frame bikes.

This might sound silly but is that US spec or would it be the same M6 in the UK?

m6 would be a metric bolt 6mm diameter.

Correct, m6 x 1, I had an 8mm long one and I ground a bit off to make it fit without bottoming out. I would also suggest just a small dab of never seize on the threads to help prevent corrosion between the aluminum case and steel fastener. This is an area that could get fairly wet, and water could get in the hole even with a bolt in it.
