Normal, they are cast iron, exposure to the elements will cause surface rust. Drive it and they will clean off.

This is completely normal and just driving a bit, using the brakes will clean the rust off. It's nothing to be concerned about in the least.

It doesn't have to sit a week to rust either. You'll notice it after hours in some climates.

Go to an auto parts store and get a good chrome cleaner.

If you dry your car immediately after washing it, you won't need to use a cleaner for your chrome.

Likely because you haven't dried the chrome thoroughly after washing your car. If you need to use a chrome cleaner it's fine to do so. Or you can just try using a cloth soaked in vinegar and see if that does the trick.

Try it on a place not too conspicuous and see, but it should not harm the paint or chrome.
