is this white spots algae growing?

well i have my lights on 8 hours a day with no co2 5.2 watts per gallon

i started seeing these white spots on my aquarium glass not sure what they are.... from a close up look, they look like a circle with tiny white dots in them... but it cant be snail eggs due to it being all over the glass and i dont see any snails around... no adults snails at all ....

so is this a start of an algae bloom cause there is no co2 and high lighting? let me know what you think picture is not 100% clear but its the best i can do... its white with tiny dots in them... like more then one in each circle... and there are 40-100 circles around the front glass that i can see alone...

are they algae starting?
how can i get rid of them?
is there such a thing as white algae?
