To me they look like dead pixels. Use the Pixel Mapping option in the menu and it should take care of it.

On my phone it is hard to tell, but if they are in the same spots in both pictures I agree with the dead/stuck pixels theory. Dust should look dark and not have a specific color. The mapping out of dead pixels mentioned should fix you right up.
