Question: Spots on Macbook Pro screen

I just noticed several (approximately 20) small specks on my Macbook Pro screen that distort the light from the screen. By that I mean, they sort of reflect the light as if they were small drops of water. I cannot clean them off with a lint-free cloth and they appear to actually be raised from the screen.

Does anyone have any idea of what this might be and how to get rid of it?

Apple sometimes repairs certain types of display issues (google "staingate"). I don't know if your MBP qualifies, or if Apple is even still repairing these affected displays. I would bring the Mac to an Apple Store “genius” bar for a free diagnosis and see what they have to say: https://support.apple.com/contact. Meanwhile, don't do anything to the "specks."
