    Some species don't move at all after reaching the scale stage. Mouth parts may be the only recognizable feature if even that in some cases. Marks they leave on the plant depends on how long they've been attached.

    If they came off rather easily (not having to "peel") and squishing them leaves "bug juice" you probably have scale.

    They are sucking insects like aphids or mealybugs - treat with a systemic insecticide.

    Sometimes waterdroplets on your plants can fry in the sun and cause burnt spots....perhaps this is the reason for those spots?

    As for why the plant was named using a referance to the Ancient Roman deity Venus, it has nothing to do with Venus whatsoever more a social comment by botanists with reference to an aspect of the feminine form that has a fimiliarity with dionaea-it was the Age of the Enlightenment after all lol.
