Default Dust spots or lens flare?

I have taken a screen capture of an area I'm a bit concerned about that appeared on one of my photos. I checked my other photos taken before and after this from the day and this is the only photo that appears to have this problem.

Any ideas?

Looks like long exposure "hot pixels".

1/60 was the shutter speed. Long? hmmm

It was taken with the kit lens if that makes any difference...

I was thinking dust but since it does not show up on any other images I took I'm not sure what it is.

This might be a better example. I just adjusted the levels to bring it out even more.

Was it dark inside and you used a flash? Doesnt look like hot pixels.

Yes, it was fairly dark inside. The sun would have been to the right of me. I was standing just outside the doorway and the flash did fire.

I am fairly certain its dust spots. I would not worry. If it was a problem it would show up in every photo.
