Default White Car, little black speckles (dots) on the trunk area?

I have a white car, and it has little black speckles on the trunk
area. When I wash it, the little black speckles (dots) become little
brown speckles, but will not totally go away. I'm not sure if this is
rust, or the beginning stages of rust, or just won't go away because
I'm not using a strong car wash cleaner. Can anyone advise me what to
do? It's over a considerable area of the trunk...would white "touch
up paint" be good on it...or is the area too big?

You need to use a rubbing compound, just washing won't do anything. But
don't use a rubbing compound if it's clear coat paint.

Try some bug and tar remover available in auto parts stores.

If you rub your hand across these bumps, are they depressions (small chips
in the paint) or raised bumps (some sort of deposit on the surface of the
paint). If they are raised then using clay from your auto store after you
next wash it should remove it. This is also usefull if you have small paint
marks from other car doors bumping your car. If it is a chip in the paint,
then it may be rust and I am not sure what the best solution is, touch up
paint might work.
