Did you try rubbing a little wax on them? If it's just a stain it should rub out. Has it bubbled up...rust/oxidation will do this.

That isn't rust. It is most likely tree pollen. Have a bad problem with that here too, had to have my whole roof buffed out earlier this year.

If you find them not to be pollen. >>>
I have seen very tiny specs of rust looking particles in various areas of my truck, they are hard to see, I was polishing my truck when I saw them, had to individually compound them all out.
most likely they are rail dust particles from shipping that are rusting into the paint job..

I had the same problem on my truck just not very bad, but I washed the truck with dawn dishsoap to remove all the old wax, used a claybar on the whole truck to remove the spots, and then finished with a regular wax. After I was done using the claybar on the truck it looked great and all the spots were gone. Takes basically the whole day for the work to be done, but well worth it.
