A little hard to tell, but it looks like relatively superficial scrapes from running into something - rocks, wood, or equipment, ?.
There's no raw flesh exposed or apparent bleeding, so it should heal ok in time.
Just make sure you keep up with lots of fresh water changes for the next few days/week or so, until you see some improvement.
Large water changes are often very helpful in remedying these types of problems fairly quickly.

Thanks discuspaul I will just keep doing what I always do and hopefully it is nothing. I try to stay away from medication in my aquarium or even putting the fish in a hospital tank.I believe it just stresses them out even more.

Great to hear that you avoid medicating unless absolutely essential. i.e, as a last resort. And also that you know placing discus in a hospital tank is stressful, at a time when they don't need anymore stress !
That's correct thinking !!!
