Probably floaters. Everyone has them.

Are they in the air or on the floor?

As well as floaters, all kinds of odd things can happen as you start to get more concentrated and mindful. A long time ago I saw the carpet start shimmering like water. The content is not important, and my experience is such things tend to pass after a while. Just note them and see what happens...
