You must have some option (quite possibly the picture style) set wrong.

 

Always use RAW mode!!  Then you can correct most sub-optimal settings in post-processing.

This one looks like a dirty lens filter, or front lens element, to me.

A microfiber cloth is good for this. A clean cotton tee shirt will work too. Either breathe on the glass or put a couple drops of clean water on the cloth. 

 

The rear glass element can also be dirty so clean it too. 

 

Blow and/or brush the glass before wiping to get any grit off. Wiping the grit around on the lens can scratch the glass.

If you do have a filter on then you must clean both sides of it plus clean the front of the lens itself.

Always do a reset on your camera when things don't come out as you expect.  Clear all settings in the menu tabs.
