Any pics for clarity? Sounds like you have rust in the metal, not just surface rust because that would mean there would have to be paint chipped first, then rust forming, which is why you use touchup paint when you notice chips. Sounds like the Michigan winter salt is eating the car from inside out. Since you're in Cali where these cars are plentiful and cheap, I;d sell it and invest in a car with no rust issues if it turns out to be serious.
