Websites blocked originating from system file and PIA VPN

Hello. I received a notification on Malwarebytes desktop app, and it states that a potential malicious site had been blocked originating on my system.
When I expanded the notification, it stated that the malicious site originated from a system file, but never stipulated where specifically. 
Before the notification popped up, I had installed a program called MusicBee. However, when I did a virus scan right after receiving the notification, it said that no threats were detected.
Another issue is the IP address being blocked from the system file is the same IP address being blocked from PIA VPN, and was wondering if the malware detection is actually originating from PIA and not my system.
Even after uninstalling MusicBee, I still get a malicious site block for PIA and my system, which I'm not sure what to do anymore. 
Below I have provided logs for PIA and system website block. If anyone could help me with this issue and/or clarify if this is a false positive, it would be much appreciated. Thanks for your time.

Hey, thanks for getting back to me in short notice.

I see now, thank you very much for the information.
Would it be okay to assume that everything is okay on my end and my PC hasn't been compromised?
Lastly, should I be concerned that my system on an outbound connection was blocked and categorized as malware?
I've gone ahead and uninstalled PIA just to make sure and it seems like the detections have stopped for both the malware and compromised flags,
Would it then be okay to assume my system flagged under malware was actually part of PIA and not my own system?

Thanks again for your time. Much appreciated.
