Default 550d/ Rebel T2i sensor problem


Images shot by my 550D in bright sunlight or telephoto (200mm+) show "SPOTS", all images and videos are practically useless.
The same spots appear on changing the lens so I assume its the sensor.

Bought this just 2 weeks back online and store says this is caused by me and they won't return.
I have absolutely no idea why this is happening. A sample image is attached PLEASE help.
The normal "dust particles" that you see were on the lens and I cleaned it.
Its these "water droplets" like spots which are making me crazy and super sad. Have I lost all my 1100$ spent?
Also I am in New York only for 2 more weeks, then going out of country for many months. SO cant even send to Canon (which only seem to have a repair centre at California)
Please HELP.

Is it happen with all the lenses or just one lens. If all the lenses, call canon tomorrow. Set up a service, and send out the body to canon in newport news. They can get the camera back to you pretty fast. When I sent mine canon in, got it back in 5 days. The faster you can get the camera to them the faster they can get it back to you.
