In brief: Possibly fungus
You may have tinea versicolor. Apply selsun blue shampoo to skin, leave on for a few minutes, then rinse off in shower. Do this 2-3 times per week for a month to help treat the fungus.
The color will take time to get back to normal, but the treatment will prevent the condition from getting worse.

In brief: Perhaps fungus
It is impossible to tell from the description.
A fungus called tinea versicolor can cause white spots which become more noticeable after sun exposure. Another condition which cause white spots is vitiligo where there is a factor causing the pigment cells to stop making pigment. A dermatologist will be able to tell the difference and properly treat the discoloration.
