This is a sign of stress and is common in new naso tangs, as the fish acclimates to captivity it should lessen.

FWIW, I have a juvenile Naso and he has those (actually lighter) gray splotches on his body. From my reading, this is normal with juveniles. As he grows these should disappear. Mine has almost doubled in size, is a real pig at food time but anytime he gets startled, those splotches will appear. Otherwise, he is an overall gray in body. Bottom line, nothing to worry about.
