Maybe your turtle is about to shed the scute. I have noticed that once in a while mine get transparent scutes that look like they are going to come off. They do kind of have a whitish appearance. Maybe you can do a search and compare it to pictures of other shell problems.

Possibly it could be fungus. Maybe you could look into that.
