Default Paint Corrosion/Defect??

I first noticed this problem with the paint on my hood a few months ago and didn't really think too much of it, but now that I look at it again I can see another spot that has developed. This is right at the contour line in front of the hood scoop. These pics aren't the best, but I think you can make it out. I can try to get better pics if it will help.

Is this corrosion or a defect in my paint?

It's hard to tell what it is from your pictures.

Yeah, I thought it would be hard to get a good pic of this. You have to get within a few inches of the hood to see it good in person. I washed the car yesterday and could not feel any surface imperfections.

My concern is that this is something that is in it's early stages and will continue to spread and I have 35,800 on the odometer.
