Rust spots on my stainless steel heater??

I bought a via aqua 200w stainless heater from my lfs a couple months ago, and now im seeing at least two rust spots that appear to be growing. Is this rust or something else? Should I get this heater outta there or what?

Thanks for any suggestions!

Agreed...stainless will rust in SW eventually. One of the Won titaniums is the way to go.
