I would think so.

When shooting film under fluorescent lights, everything comes out with a green tint.

To compensate you can use a magenta filter.

Magenta is reddish pink.

So I would assume the digital camera is adding a bit of magenta color when the white balance is set to fluorescent.

How can I compensate for the red tint

"How can I compensate for the red tint"

I assume you mean after the fact....

You need photo editing software.

If you don't have any, then go to:

Download Irfanview (it is free and as a handy as soap on a rope).

Install Irfanview.
Execute Irfanview.

With Irfanview:
File/Open (find you photo(s) and open one).
Image/Enhance Colors.
Decrease the red until it looks right (use slider).
Click OK.


Change the name of the photo (to keep from overwriting your origial).
Navigate to where you want to put the photo.
...Don't get ahead of me here.

Now look to the right and you will see a smaller window called JPEG/GIF Save Options.
Adjust the Save Quality slider until it is set to 90.

Click Save
