Is this pitting?

So I bought Calphalon Tri-Ply 13 piece set last night to replace some anodized ones.. first set of stainless I've ever used and I'm a beginner cook. I spent an hour last night taking em out of the box and cleaning them, this morning I wake up and make some soft boiled eggs and I'm left with these spots. It's literally all I did, did not add salt which appears the cause the pitting but to me that's what it looks like. I waited for the pan to cool before cleaning... I also have a ring around the pan where the water was that I can't get off... I'll admit that I haven't used a scrubber/bar keepers friend because I only have heavy duty sponges which would likely scratch the surface. So all I used to try and clean the spots and ring off was a wet paper towel with dish soap.

Any suggestions? I'm ordering BKF now from Amazon and some cleaning pads, hoping that takes these spots off... Hope I don't get this result in all of my pots and pans, I'd be pretty disappointed :/ especially since I just boiled water and cooked eggs with the shell still on...
