    It's hard to see in your picture. Small patches of white spots? It could be that your coral is slowly bleaching but I can't see it in the pic.

    Just go to a lfs or online get a bottle of revive or just ask them for a coral dip and follow the directions on the bottle also a good resource is go on you two or vividaquarium they have a good video on dipping your coral

    Just follow the directions for a coral dip solution. Most reefers use Revive.
