I think you got vallisneria spiralis leopard. In that case, those spots are just part of the plant.

The val in my tank was also sold to me as V americana but it's also a V spiralis leopard. i believe it's something that fish stores just get mixed up unfortunately, but it's growing great and provides the same function
