Little brown/black specks on my tomatoes!

I couldn't find anything relevant to what is on my tomatoes, but the best I can describe it as is little dark speckles on it. It looks like someone sprinkled black pepper on them or something, though the spots are part of the tomato, they won't rub or scrape off. (I gently used my thumbnail, nothing harmful)

How is it doing? spots bigger? More numerous? Or the same?

Thank you very much for your reply, I was feeling very helpless! The spots are exactly the same, no change. No new ones, no bigger, not darker.

I'm also not sure what the white on the leaves there would be, the only thing I could find was that it might be sun damage. It has been hot, but not a whole lot of direct sun gets down there. There's some patches like that on the other side, but only in those two spots. Any clues? :)
