I will answer your question now based on the image that you have provided.
You are most likely having what is called as Tinea versicolor.
This is a fungal infection of the skin and forms oval or round patches on the skin like what you are having at the moment.
This can be simply treated with over-the-counter topical applications like monistat skin cream applied two to three times a day for five to seven days.
Fungal infections of the skin happen very commonly in people who sweat a lot and tend to happen more commonly in Summer season as fungi love to grow on moist skin.
It is something very common and nothing to worry about.
