Difficult to respond without seeing your issue, the white spots you describe could be enamel damage caused by plaque, acids, and poor oral hygiene in the past.
Brushing correctly 2-3 times a day is good. Fluoride toothpaste is also a good idea. See a dentist to check these white areas and give you advice.

In brief: 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.
