In brief: Burst blood vessel
I think you are describing a "subconjunctival hemorrhage" which is when a small blood vessel bursts under cornea, or white part if the eye.
These can be caused by trauma, a cough or sneeze, straining to have a bm, or by surgery. They are benign and should by entirely without symptoms, i.E painless, no discharge or problems with vision. If you have any of those, see your doctor as soon as possible.

In brief: Likely corneal ulcer
This is a potentially serious infection of the cornea, the clear front covering of the eye.
Much more common in contact lens wearers. Take your contact lenses out immediately and see an ophthalmologist within 24 hours.

In brief: Corneal infiltrate
Its probably on your cornea, not the iris.
Typically these are called ulcers but it can be either infectious or immunological or a scar. Since you don't seem to be complaining of severe pain most likely its from blepharitis, an immunological reaction from staph toxins or contact lenses, or its a scar. Still need to see your eye doctor.

In brief: Cornea ulcer
It can be a cornea ulcer which is an infection that needs to be treated urgently.
Stop wearing your contact lenses and see your ophthalmologist.

The white spots are probably not on the iris but on the cornea, which is the clear part of the eye that goes over your iris. There are also certain strain of virus that can cause white spots on your cornea, a severe form of pink eye. Best to see your eye doctor.

In brief: White spot on eye
The conjunctiva commonly has an area next to the iris at the 3 and 0 o'clock positions which has little vasculature.
If there is bleeding under the conjunctiva it commonly spreads over everything except this small area which then is highlighted with the surrounding red and looks like a white bump. This is an optical effect and not pathology.
