Sounds like diatoms to me. Normal in new tanks, tends to go away by itself.

How long does it take for diatoms to go away?

I have had them well over 6 weeks, do they ever go away?

eventually yes. Try not doing water changes so the diatoms outcompete themselves in case of high silicates. Otherwise, 3 day blackout worked great for me.
