Default What's up with my plecos?

So I have my Bushynose Plecos (ihave 2 of them) for a few days now and I've noticed that each one has a small light patch where the brown looks more like an albino in that spot. What are these markings?

the brown bushynose often have some white or cream colored parts....tips of dorsal and back edges of the tail..they will also have some very light cream or yellow spotting on their bodies.some show more than others.
