I have a nice panda plant, but now I see these random white like projections that look like thorns sprouting. What is this, is it a new leaf or something bad?

Yes, they are just roots, and nothing to worry about. A drier climate would help prevent them, if it matters to you. Roots above ground on succulents are encouraged by higher humidity and soil that is more moist than it needs to be.

I agree

Google aerial roots or adventitious roots. Some find them unattractive and remove them, others don't bother.

Here are 2 Kalanchoe with aerial roots.
