Sudden tooth decay?

Sudden tooth decay? I've got three of these spots
on my teeth at the gumline that I just noticed this morning. They looked like something stuck to my tooth, but upon closer inspection they seem to be indentations in the tooth. I saw the dentist 5 weeks ago for a cleaning and everything seemed fine. Is this decay, or what?

I'll be calling my dentist on Monday. I'm out of state so if this is anything urgent I'll need to find a new one in my current city.
I brush 2-3 times per day, floss 1-2 times per day.
The only things out of the ordinary for me recently have been:
Have had intermittent sinus congestion for 5 weeks.
Have experienced a white tongue (thrush?) intermittently for 2 weeks (have brushed tongue with toothpaste to remove white stuff).
Started using Tom's of Maine mouthwash about 2-3 times per week for 2 weeks.
Switched my Colgate toothpaste variety to Baking Soda & Peroxide Whitening about 1 week ago.
