I have had white spots show up on my african violet leaves. Any ideas what it is?

It looks like water damage, they are very sensitive to water dropping on the leaves. The yellow leave could just be age, or there's more going on, its hard to tell when I cant see the soil. How long have they been in the pots, are their drainage holes?

@csanders64 welcome !
Beautiful & unique flowers on that plant !
I get leaf spotting when I drip water on my violet leaves. Beyond that, I'm not sure.

OK! That makes sense! They have a wick/reservoir system, however the green one just came in from a greenhouse, so that would make sense. The second plant, I was probably just a little messy with my watering can. Thanks for the help!
