White indicators showing in print preview

Question I have regarding print preview...What are the white indicators that are showing up on this print preview, will it affect my print,  and is there a way to get rid off them?

I thought they might be seams but seems strange to have they in random places.

    They are seams. Or actually they are starts and stops of extruded parts. One place where such starts/stops happen is at the Z seam (where one layer stops, the z is increased, and the next layer starts). But there are also places where the extruder stops extruding, moves somewhere else within the layer, and then starts again. This can also leave a seam. Without a look at your model, it is hard to tell why Cura is doing this in this case.
