on the glass

new fish keeper here,
ive had my tank about 6 weeks now,
every thing seems fine,
on the inside on the glass there seems to be blotches forming.
they are small, finger print size, just wondering what these are and do
i just wipe to get rid off?

Might be diatoms. Have you increased your light exposure recently?
