Liquid dirt from windshield

Hi All,

I have a 2012 SEL HB.

I noticed today that my windshield wiper fluid is leaving spots all over my car. At first I thought it was the stuff on my windshield that was being flung onto the roof by the wipers. But you can see there is the spots in front of the nozzle. (Please click on the links; I couldn't get them to embedd; maybe that they are too big but I didn't want to decrease the quality).



Windshield Corner


The spots/debris are like tan/white in color and are raised. They show up after the fluid has evaporated.

What the heck is going on? Anyone seen this before? I have NEVER seen this. Was I supposed to do something with the windshield fluid when I first got the car?

And where do I go from here? Put in some good quality fluid and run the fluid through? I'm worried that the pump is full of debris too. I can't see the bottom of the reservoir to see if there is a ton of silt. Should I contact the dealer? I'm going in next week anyway to get a speaker replaced.

Lots of questions. Thanks in advance for your help.
