can brushing your teeth with whitiinging toothpaste then other kinds of paste 3 times a day cause white spots and lines near the gum line?

No: Brushing will not cause white spots. White spots are caused by sugars and acids in foods and drinks. The white spots are the first sign of decay. So see your dentist regularly and think about changing your diet.
