Those are mineral deposits - mostly calcium. In order to remove the build up from the shower head you'll need to put around a cup of white vinegar in a plastic bag. Next, place the bag around the fixture, secure it with a rubber band, and leave it there overnight. The next morning, remove it and use a scrub brush, or an old toothbrush, to dislodge the deposits.
This usually indicates that the flush valve on your toilet is not placed correctly and the water inside the tank is leaking into the bowl. This is often a result of an issue with your life chain, a problem with the flush valve, or a faulty flapper.
Take off the faucet aerator located on the end of the spout and clean out any debris and dirt. The aerator on the faucet is meant to serve as a way to diffuse the water and prevent it from splashing. However, when it becomes clogged, it can diminish the level of pressure you get from the faucet.
