It is the "Third Eye". Yes, it is a Hindu religious custom.

I was told its the sign of an unmarried woman or a virgin (which all unmarried women are supposed to be).

One red dot between two eyebrows is called "tip" and is used for beautification by almost all Indian women regardless of religion & cast. The other red dot (a red line, instead) in between the hairline, is called "shindur", and is the sign of a married Hindu woman. It means the woman is taken & not a virgin.
