Problem with k10d

Sometimes when I take photos some of the shots come out with yellow and black dots around the image. Not enough light I am not sure, can anyone help? Has this happen to anyone else?
I shoot AP mostly

This is a setting in the camera that highlights underexposed areas. Disable it in the menu if you don't want to be bothered by it, but it otherwise indicates that parts of your photo are underexposed (completely black: yellow dots) or overexposed (completely white: red dots).

hey Groves! I am a Michigander too!! The manual that came with your camera is your friend! Get to know it well. (Of course WE want to be your friends too, so you can always keep asking questions here!)

The 10,000$ question is: is that when you review them on a PC or when you review them on the camera. Assuming it's the second one, see Adam's answer.
