Could you post a picture? Might be rose slugs (little worm on underside of leaves) but without a picture, it's hard to say.

Very likely the white spots are where small rose slugs have eaten off the lower surface of the leaves, making the area translucent. When they grow larger, they make angular holes. Just look at the underside and wipe then off.
