Live rock is getting small spots?

Hello everyone. I'm pretty new to this hobby and recently I have noticed like Orange/red spots appearing in my live rock. Does anyone know why and if I should be worried?

Looks like you actually have what is called "base" rock. That is rock that has yet to grow anything on it - A process sometimes referred to as being "cured". You'll see all types of color and other changes to your base rock as it ages overtime into "live rock". To accelerate the process I'd recommend adding in a chunk of live rock that already has Coraline algae and other items on it.
