Default spots won't come off

i recently bought a wrx hatch and i haven't gotten a chance to wash it since i bought it in october. i just washed it because it was a nice day and the car was covered with white from the salt on the roads. i just went through the car wash because i didn't have the time to hand wash it which i usually do but i just looked at the car and it looks like there are small spots all over the car some are black like oil almost and some look like the color of the car but won't come out like water stains it's on my glass too and won't come off what is it and how can i get it off? i assume it's salt correct me if i'm wrong.

Pics will help.

Are they rust spots in the paint? See my thread where I removed rust spots from my car

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1695726

Try a clay bar to remove the spots.

edit: do you park under/near a tree at all?
