Could you attach the images and outline the problematic areas on them?

Looks like some kind of light source for me. Did you use flash?

Looks the same to me, although maybe just the sun. Assuming you're talking about the more obvious ones they all seem to be around your reflection so maybe you were wearing something highly reflective like shoes, shiny buttons etc? One looks like about the right area to be the lens.

The smaller specks are probably something really there that you mightn't have noticed, maybe a bit of cigarette ash or the like.

It looks like a optical reflection, but check your sensor for dust too.

Have you taken the photo with a polfilter on your lens or without a filter?

Some of the first 5D Mark III´s had problems with "hotpixels". Hotpixels normally appear in long exposures under low light conditions, but also appear if pixels on the sensor are dead. Take a few photos. If you see the whites in all photos, send in the camera for repair.

I bet they're reflections. See if they appear on other shots. Otherwise, nothing to worry about
