it's just rusting from the top, not from underneath, so it's not going to get that bad. but nonetheless, you can sand it with some wet wet/dry very fine grit (#600), then apply primer then touch up paint and you're done. or, there's stuff called 'rust-mort' and 'naval-jelly' you can get at an auto parts store. they're both supposed to do the same thing, though i can only speak for rust-mort - it's just a liquid you apply to the rusted area and it turns it hard and black and it stops oxidizing (rusting). it works quite well after a few applications, letting it dry inbetween. then just prime and paint it.

whatever you do, make sure you clean it up first, then paint it. definitely touch up any chips in your paint to avoid future rust.

if the rust youre talking about is just the area you see on the chip, then its not that bad. metal oxides very quickly (take a look at your brake disc after some rain). just wipe it up real well, roll up a fine sand paper (like #600-1200), sand off the rust, wipe off clean and apply some touchup paint. no biggie.

if you start seeing some ripples form around it from the rust, then its a manufacturing defect.

After one Canadian winter, my car was covered with little rust dots. While doing the zaino claybar (great product btw) on the car i noticed all the paint chips had rusted but they arent huge spots its pretty tiny. The weird thing was to find rust on the lower body panels of the car where theres no metal. Looking at those little dots closely, it seems as though the paint itself is rusting, could this be?

Those are likely just brake dust.
