Rust on the brake rotors. Drive it a little and apply the brakes and it will be gone. It is normal.

If your looking at the brake rotor then yes it is rust, this is normal especially after a good soaking rain or you ran through a puddle and the brakes didn't get warmed up enough to dry the rotors, I see this ail the time here in western Oregon in the rainy season. My neighbor freaked out when he saw this on his new Volvo the next day after he washed it and gave the wheels a good cleaning, it was actually denser than your picture, a quick trip around the block using the brakes off and on cleared it right up, it is totally normal so don't worry it will come right off when you drive it.
