Water marks on paint are generally not the end of the world, but it could be an indicator of general neglect so just beware of other issues.

As for removal, a thorough paint cleaning should remove them completely. Clay bar treatment and a good compound will probably be enough to get rid of everything.

Mix 1 part regular white vinegar with 1 part distilled water (soft water is good too). It's better not to use regular tap water which contains minerals. Apply the vinegar/water solution with a spray bottle on to the affected paint finish.
