Get in trouble a bit (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

tinge

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'a bit' is the definition.
Although both the answer and definition are singular nouns, I can't understand how one could define the other.

'get in trouble' is the wordplay.
'trouble' indicates anagramming the letters.
'get'+'in'='getin'
'getin' with letters rearranged gives 'TINGE'.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for tinge that I've seen before include "Get in (anag)", "Slight trace; colour", "Slight tint", "Slight amount of colour", "suggestion".)
