Stainless Steel

My pot (stainless steel 205 35) has some pits, if any poison metals dissolve into food, is it still safety to use? Attached some pictures for reference.

About two months ago, I bought a pot from IKEA that made by stainless steel 205 35, marked outside bottom of the pot. While a few days ago, I found there have 4 or 5 pits which diameter belike 0.1-0.3cm in the inside bottom of the pot. These pits seem like the plating surface of stainless steel were shed or taken off. Hence, I very worry about if any toxic metal, Nickel, Manganese, Chrome…dissolves into food when cooking. Is it still safety for cooking? Being parent, I will keep our children health and safety. Waiting and appreciate for your answers.
