Hard to tell from the pic, but it could be just hard water buildup , or it could be corrosion.

If it is buildup from hard water, you can remove it with vinegar.

If the finish is actually corroded, the faucet wil need replacing.

I’d try with CLR.  If it doesn’t come off, then you’ll probably need to replace the faucet.

That looks like a copper or brass fixture with worn out chrome or nickel plate… you can try clr but may keep coming back if you don’t replace or have it replated.
