Default Yellow spots/stains on front bumper cover

Anyone else have small yellow stains or spots on the front bumper cover My truck is stone white so they stand out, I have tried many things to clean them off but I am starting to think they are under the clear coat. Any suggestions?
Thanks

Do they look like little rust spots?

A clay bar would be my first attempt to remove it. its probably just crap stuck in the clear coat

DUDE i will let you in on my little secret for removing the majority of stains bug guts even clearcoat scratches. MAGIC ERASER they sell them at walmart its the last thing i do before i wax is to do a once over the whole truck with magic eraser. And as you can see in most of my pics my truck is almost 2 years old and still looks new. Ive had 2 pretty severe clearcoat scratches one from when my dad backed into my rear bumper with my moms PT cruiser, dented the car left a pretty good scratch on my truck and magic eraser took it right off.

i got those yellow spots on my stone white truck too. mine are around the area that the front plates were. i think maybe some paper tags they had on there stained the paint. I also have some stains from the back parking sensors. sport edition so everything is painted

i will give that majic eraser a try becuase clay bar didnt do shit.

Bees are starting to drop pollen & honey every where about this time of year
I have seen bees that have their legs so heavily built up with stuff that they can't fly very far at a time, they land all over my truck & leave what looks like drops of a heavy liquid, yellow in color & if i don't wash it off within a day or two, it turns almost black & is very hard to remove

a clay bar should be the trick if it looks like little rust spots
